OECD report on Earth observation for decision making

The organisation, which promotes economic growth, prosperity, and sustainable development describes Earth observation data as a unique source of eommensurable information. It can be combined with administrative, social and economic data at multiple scales for in-depth policy analysis.

Examples of applications of Earth observation data included in the publication include the joint Research Centre’s Human Settlement layer, a global high-resolution multitemporal dataset which measures the extent of built-up areas and was developed through GEO.

Earth observation data is now routinely used in country reviews by OECD, and supports policy analysis. OECD joined GEO as an observer in 2015.
