Several organizations that support the work of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) signed a memorandum of understanding to maintain and enhance the GEO capacity building portal (GEOCAB).
The GEOCAB portal provides information and links on capacity building and marketing related to earth observation, ranging from links to free software to general information about the capabilities of earth observation applications. The establishment of GEOCAB was possible thanks to support from the European Commission through the FP7 project EOPOWER.
The core partners of the MoU are the University of Geneva (Switzerland), the Institute for Research and Development (France, part of ESPACE-DEV), the UN regional center for French-speaking CRASTE-LF (based in Morocco), the Italian research council CNR, the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece), ITC (part of the University of Twente) and HCP international (both from the Netherlands). Support is provided by the CEOS Working Group on Capacity Development, the GEO Secretariat, SANSA and any party that wants to contribute!
