GEOSS is mainly used to develop a data-driven system to investigate the Earth’s past, present, and future scenarios and models. In addition, the GEOSS is expected to address societal benefit areas of critical importance, such as disaster, climate, water, weather, ecosystem, agriculture, biodiversity, health, and energy. The GEOSS was developed by the GEO, a voluntary partnership of governments and international organizations, to utilize the growing potential of Earth observation. The GEO has been coordinating efforts to build GEOSS on the basis of a 10-year implementation plan. The GEOSS system is expected to be completed by 2015. Therefore, the formation of GEOSS is an emerging trend that is expected to have a positive influence on the growth of the market during the forecast period.
