Legal and policy – SA-GEO

Legal and policy

Overview: Legal and policy CoP

Facilitating access to and uptake of Earth observation data and information by a wide range of user communities and promoting the usefulness of such data for society requires flexible legal and policy frameworks that enable a more open data environment.

Community contributions and activities
  • Contribution to the GEO data sharing working group and legal interoperability sub-group;
  • Recommendation that the framework for full and open access to data be addressed in the implementation of SAEOSS;
  • Capacity building and knowledge sharing and networking in terms of legal and policy matters;
  • Identification of existing approaches on the interpretation of full and open access to geographic data; and
  • Investigation into international policies and norms on access to data.
