   _I hope reproducing this paragraph isn't violating copyright - anyone?
   It comes from too many sources to attribute!_
   
   CEOS was created in 1984 as a result of the international Economic
   Summit of Industrialized Nations and serves as the focal point for
   international coordination of space-related, Earth observation
   activities. Policy and technical issues of common interest related to
   the whole spectrum of Earth observation satellite missions and data
   received from such are addressed. CEOS encourages complementarity and
   compatibility among space-borne Earth observing systems through
   coordination in mission planning, promotion of full and
   non-discriminatory data access, setting of data product standards, and
   development of compatible data products, services, and applications.
   The user community benefits directly from this international
   coordination.
   
   The CEOS information system is at http://gds.esrin.esa.it/CCEOSinfo,
   and contains full details and CEOS files.
   
   See also CEOS calibration pages at

   CEOS also sponsors
   
    The CEOS International Directory Network (CEOS IDN)
    
   _Need someone to wirte a real entry_ This is the authoritative
   worldwide information system that answers every possible question
   about Satellite Earth Observation. The complete database is held at
   the three coordinating nodes in America (NASA/GSFC), Europe
   (ESA/ESRIN) and Asia (NASDA/EOC). For access details, see under
   Further Information.
