General information and objectivesThe European Space Agency and the European Commission have agreed to work towards a more efficient and cost-effective use of Earth observation data, by combining their expertise with that of their Member States plus other relevant European organisations such as EUMETSAT to establish a coordinated, decentralized Earth observation network called the European Earth Observation System, EEOS (EC, 1995).
