Potential Uses of the Expert Database

  • Match Federation members with GEO teams working on funded "Earth Observations for Decision Support" projects
  • Spawn new collaborations
  • Create a skills "bank" where "ESIP hours" accumulate by providing a technical service needed by some Federation member, and then spent to obtain a service from a different Federation member.
