IIASA Geo-Bene Team looks for references, studies on societal-economic benefits of EO

From our daily mail. Letter from the IAASA Geo-Bene Team from Laxemburg bei Wien.
"Dear Expert/Madam/Sir,
In the course of the Project (EU FP6) on Earth Observation (EO), the IIASA Forestry Program is performing a meta-study to collect GEOSS-related benefit assessments. We are looking for literature and studies measuring socio-economic benefits (qualitative/quantitative) related to EO. We welcome studies from all societal benefit areas illustrating the potential of EO.
This state-of-the-art Meta Study on EO-related benefit assessments will be published on This site will evolve into a reviewed public domain database of all GEOSS related benefit studies, open for your own scientific purposes.
Please submit your contribution at:
