The Data Working Group (Data-WG) is convened to work with the GEO community and external stakeholders to address data policy, data ethics and data governance issues impacting the use of Earth observations. This collaborative effort aims to enhance the uptake of Earth observations for decision making.
In this way, we support the translation of the Canberra Declaration into concrete actions within the GEO Work Programme.
WHAT WE DO
- Іdentifying best practices for addressing legal, ethical, privacy, intellectual property, and other concerns related to Earth observations data sharing and management
- Promoting the global adoption and implementation of GEOSS Data Sharing Principles and GEOSS Data Management Principles
- Advancing the interoperability of Earth observations and complementary data as well as facilitating discussions with stakeholder communities on data-related topics
