Building a User-Driven GEOSS: Methods to Capture, Analyze, and Prioritize User Needs
Sydney, Australia, April 10, 2011


Workshop Program Overview

During the morning sessions, a review was conducted of the activities of GEO, its committees, the Work Plan Tasks, and the Communities of Practice that relate to linking to users and understanding their needs. In the afternoon sessions, first experts on user linkage provided insight into theoretical and practical approaches to user-driven systems, and the the participants discussed how the on-going activities in GEO could be complemented through additional initiatives.
