South African Group on Earth Observations (SA-GEO) Symposium

  • 20 Oct 2015
  • 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM
  • CASA TOSCANA LODGE (5 Darlington Road, Lynnwood Manor, Pretoria Gauteng

The Symposium will seek to provide clarity on issues related to the field of Earth observation and take certain practical steps, including the following:

  • Provide an explanation of the operations of the National Earth Observation and Space Secretariat (NEOSS) since its absorption into the Department of Science and Technology.
  • Elect new co-chairs for the various communities of practice (CoPs).
  • Make inputs into the South African statement in preparation for the 2015 Group on Earth Observations (GEO) Summit plenary session.
  • Gain greater understanding of the requirements of the Earth observation community, which will assist in drafting an activity plan for SA-GEO in the 2016/17 financial year.

We will continue to focus our efforts on coordinating and growing a vibrant Earth observation community in South Africa. Updates about the event will also be posted on the SA-GEO website at

Your attendance and participation will be greatly appreciated.
