The GEOSS strategic plan specifically targets the area of improved energy resource management due to the importance of these to the economic and social viability of every nation of the world. With the world's increasing demand for energy resources, the need for new alternative energy resources grows. This paper overviews a new initiative within the International Energy Agency that addresses needs to better manage and develop solar energy resources worldwide. The goal is to provide the solar…

Improving Geometric Performance for Imagery Captured by Non-Cartographic Optical Satellite: A Case Study of GF-1 WFV Imagery
TLDR
This paper explores the cartographic possibility of images being not initially intended for surveying and mapping, and a novel method is proposed to improve the geometric performance of images captured by non-cartographic satellite.
Test of Several Approaches for the Composition of Web Services in Meteorology
TLDR
An overview of three main types of approaches in composition of web services: static plan, IA-plan and theorem proof is presented and an hybrid approach that combines the three is recommended in order to obtain an automatic and adaptative composition.
