WGISS - 40 Harwell United Kingdom 28 th September 2015 Data 03 - 2015 -Q 4 Assessment of Technical Architectures for Supporting Operational Programs CEOS has made considerable progress in coordinating data acquisition to support important stakeholder initiatives, a number of which have a goal of becoming operational over the coming years. The challenges of routinely processing and analyzing full archives of data to produce operational products are very different to those of producing one-off example products. Traditional ? clip and ship? approaches are proving not to work. This presents a significant ? big data? challenge for both the user communities and the space agencies who wish to support them, but whose programs must also be sustainable. In response to this strategic challenge, WGISS will propose recommendations to SEO for exploring options for how international activities that target an operational state, such as GFOI and GEOGLAM, may be sustainably supported by CEOS and CEOS Agencies into the future. A number of pilot projects are underway that will provide important learnings. These recommendations will be a key input into broader discussions on governance, finance and management.

WGISS - 40 Harwell United Kingdom 28 th September 2015 VC 01 - 2015 -Q 4 1/2 List of Relevant Datasets from VCs Each VC will provide WGISS with a list of relevant datasets that its respective constellation members desire to access. WGISS will work with CEOS data providers to ensure search and accessibility (when possible) of these datasets are available so as to ensure coverage of all datasets required by VCs. Responsible CEOS Entities : Progress Report (Update from June 2015 SIT Chair Tag. Up) Pending, waiting request from VCs. WGISS has formed an Interoperability Interest Group to actively engage with CEOS Virtual Constellations, Working Groups and other groups that benefit from the WGISS projects (i. e. GEOSS). An opportunity is given to these groups to participate during WGISS meetings. …/… 5

WGISS - 40 Harwell United Kingdom 28 th September 2015 WAT 01 - 2015 -Q 4 Development of a CEOS response to the GEOSS Water Strategy. The GEOSS Water Strategy includes a number of recommendations that deal with satellites. In 2015, CEOS will assess the feasibility of CEOS Agencies to contribute to the development of the GEOSS Water Implementation Plan, and to define the potential CEOS contribution to the implementation of the GEOSS Water Strategy. The establishment of an ad-hoc Initial Study Team to progress this work was agreed at the 28 th CEOS Plenary Meeting, with an initial report to be provided at SIT-30 Responsible CEOS Entities : WSIST Progress Report : The CEOS Open. Search Team is developing the CEOS Open. Search Best Practices Guideline Document. This document will also include CWIC Open. Search Best Practices information and standards for interoperability to facilitate discovery and access of data. The Best Practice Document draft was issued October 2014, during the WGISS-38 meeting and is available at http: //www. ceos. org/images/WGISS/Open. Search/CEOSOpen. Search. Best. Practice.

WGISS - 40 Harwell United Kingdom 28 th September 2015 CARB 08 -35 - 2015 -Q 4 Guidelines for appropriate data use of satellite data and data products. The CEOS Carbon Subgroup (recommended in Carbon-Action-38) will develop guidelines for appropriate data use of satellite data and data products. ? This will require improved interactions between the carbon cycle community and the satellite community; comprehensive review of the current use of data products, including current data limitations; and reconciliation of methodological differences and spatial compatibility. ? Such interactions may include cosponsorship of joint workshops targeting specific data needs and investment in community product assessments, especially for key intercomparison exercises. Responsible CEOS Entities : WGISS Progress Report : From principles, AI-35 is similar to AI-32 but related to space-based data products. Please follow AI 32. Please note that the principle goal of QA 4 EO is the development of guidelines for satellite data and products which implies the appropriate data use. WGCV is able to provide also input (validation results reflecting limitations in usage) within its product portfolio In addition note that some dedicated workshops are in place (IWGGMS or IGCOS workshop in September) 8
