The mission of GfG2 is to better assess the value of GNSS for the Global Environmental Earth Observation (GEEO) and for the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS). GfG2 is a Coordination Action (CA) within the European 7th Framework Program. The CA will: determine on going GNSS-GEEO and GNSS-GEOSS activities either related to positioning or not, mass-market or scientific (ESA, EC, national or regional funded projects); consolidate a GNSS community of experts for GEEO and GEOSS; explore novel applications of GNSS for GEEO and GEOSS with specific attention to the needs of Environment work program 2010 sub-activity 6.4.1; identify the perspectives for technological developments to develop the novel applications, providing a strategic support to EO operational methodologies and measurements; assess the value of a European independent GNSS constellation for GEEO and GEOSS, more specifically the value of EGNOS and GALILEO; promote the public understanding of GNSS research and use among the GEO community providing support to GEO tasks.
