Recognising a need to structure products and services, EARSC prepared and issued the first version of the EARSC Taxonomy for the EO Services Market in February 2012. As it is intended to be a living document, a new version is being issued now in August 2015.
The document provides a clear and common description of EO products and services which will help suppliers and customers arrive at a common understanding of what can be offered.
For a full history, readers will also need to refer to issue 1 which shall be maintained available through the EARSC web-site.
We shall review this periodically and invite comment and suggestions as to improvements.
