e-SOTER in GEO Work Plan 2009-2011

The e-SOTER project together with partner JRC has contributed to the draft sub-task Bio-geophysical, Soil & Land Surface Data (US-09-03c) of the July 2009 version of the GEO 2009-2011 Work Plan. It will support the development of a Global Soil Observing System and incorporate the various existing regional SOTER initiatives into a coherent system for soil data. It will provide harmonized and policy-relevant information to users at the regional and national levels. As the European contribution to a Global Soil Observing System, e-SOTER will deliver a web-based regional pilot platform with data, methodologies, and applications, using remote sensing to validate, augment and extend existing data.
