The intergovernmental Group on Earth Observations (GEO) is comprised of 102 Member states, including the European Commission, and 92 Participating Organizations. GEO strives to improve the world's observation systems and provide policy makers and scientists with accurate and useful data that can be used to make informed decisions. GEO's primary focus is to develop a Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) to enhance the ability of end-users to discover and access Earth observation data and convert it to useable and useful information.
