Abstract

Decision makers in business and government have historically depended on geomatics experts when they have sought to benefit from Earth observation systems. Similarly, scientists in fields other than geomatics have had to either learn about geomatics or team with geomatics experts to benefit from these systems. Fortunately, as Earth observation technologies and markets have progressed, standards have steadily advanced, which, along with other benefits described below, allows geomatics experts to establish reusable services for routine decision-making.
