Group on Earth Observations (GEO)
The Data Working Group, together with the GEOSS Platform and the GEO Knowledge Hub teams, will host a two-day workshop on Open Data and Open Knowledge from June 15-16, 2023. The event will provide the GEO community with an opportunity to discuss technical advances, challenges, and solutions related to open knowledge practices. The event follows the endorsement of the GEO Statement on Open Knowledge in 2021 and seeks to empower all users to access and use open EO-based applications in the various engagement priorities and main conventions.
The objectives of the workshop are to highlight the ongoing efforts of the GEO community towards open and reproducible knowledge, promote open knowledge applications to the youth community, as well as to less represented communities, and align the GEO community and its activities with the open and reproducible knowledge vision. Furthermore, the event aims to explore and discuss technological advances that facilitate the implementation of open knowledge, provide an opportunity for data and knowledge providers to meet users working on GEO engagement priorities, and discuss gaps and needs versus statistical data to support the development of knowledge-based products.
The Open Data & Open Knowledge Workshop will take place in person for the first time in three years and promises to be a significant opportunity for the GEO community to come together and discuss open knowledge practices. Participants can register for the workshop via the GEO website.
