The 11th GEO Plenary session is taking place in Geneva this week under the theme “Taking the Pulse of the Planet.”

The Group on Earth Observation (GEO) convenes its 11th plenary session in Geneva this week under the theme “Taking the Pulse of the Planet.” About 275 members of the GEO community, from more than 45 countries, will chart the next steps in creating and implementing a Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS).

One highlight of the conference will be the announcement of the winners of the GEO Appathon, a global “app” development competition built on the 80 million-plus resources currently available through GEOSS. The Appathon attracted 250 competitors from 50 countries and will generate easy-to-use decision tools for mobile devices and computers. 

GEO’s mandate is to harness the power of Earth observations from sources across the globe to provide more and better information to leaders in government, industry, and civil society confronting fundamental decisions affecting people and societies worldwide.
