AOGEO Symposium

The annual regional Forum to exchange broad scientific and technical views on Earth observations and their applications as well as to report progress of tasks in the AOGEO. GEO Principals are invited to the Forum.

Inheriting the GEOSS Asia-Pacific Symposium which initiated in 2007, participants deeply discuss and decide the direction of the AOGEO activities, which is published as an Official Statement of AOGEO.
