ICSU-WDS Recognized as Participating Organization in GEO


The ICSU World Data System (ICSU-WDS) is now officially recognized as a 'Participating Organization' in the intergovernmental Group on Earth Observations (GEO). WDS will contribute its Members’ key multidisciplinary quality-assessed scientific datasets to the GEO System of Systems (GEOSS) Data Collection of Open Resources for Everyone. WDS is also supporting a community-based framework for long-term preservation and publication of scientific data that it hopes will be utilized in the context of GEOSS.
