Abstract

This report aims to enable staff and organisations to gain the knowledge, confidence and skills to become intelligent customers and practitioners of Earth observation (EO).

For most organisations this will require additions to current expertise. This document aims to help with the identification of what is needed for this, how to maximise existing skillsets and how to bring the right skills together across a team or organisation. Many of the skills needed for EO will already exist in any given organisation for other purposes. Whilst some required skills are particularly EO specific, these can often be picked up by people with other spatial skills and the effort required for gain is relatively small. It is hoped that this will promote rapid uptake of EO to make a difference in the delivery of public functions. Information on relevant existing frameworks is presented, illustrating alignment and gaps between the skills needed for working with EO overall and current support and resources available.

Please note that although this report has been through an internal process to make it as accessible as possible, some accessibility issues may still remain. If it doesn't meet your requirements, please get in touch.
