The Requirements Capabilities & Analysis for Earth Observations (RCA-EO) helps the USGS and other agencies take full advantage of U.S. and international Earth observation capabilities, and develop requirements-driven, prioritized investment decisions for new EO systems, products, and services.

USGS ECCOE staff support RCA-EO with high levels of expertise and years of knowledge about existing Earth observations systems, researching and identifying the capabilities of new systems, creating tools to help identify and visualize new sensors and the resulting data, and communicate research and results with the remote sensing community. 

ECCOE maintains and enhances the Earth Observation Requirements Evaluation System (EORES) for USGS and NOAA in support of understanding and assessing earth observing product value and user requirements, earth observing system capabilities.

Conducts independent technical characterizations and quality
assessments of a broad variety
of satellite, airborne and
in-situ earth observation systems
to support
USGS and its partners national land imaging science needs. 
Leverages resources
from Federal agencies for the characterization
of remote sensing
data and to share those results
across the remote sensing community. 
Provides long-term capability to
collect, maintain, and analyze
Earth observation requirements
and capabilities using relational databases,
user interfaces,
and analysis tools.

Facilitates the application
of multi- satellite and
in-situ data for characterization
and validation of satellite-derived land-related products.
