Due to a lapse in appropriations, the majority of USGS websites may not be up to date and may not reflect current conditions. Websites displaying real-time data, such as Earthquake and Water and information needed for public health and safety will be updated with limited support. Additionally, USGS will not be able to respond to inquiries until appropriations are enacted. For more information, please see www.doi.gov/shutdown
EROS User Group
Science Center Objects
The purpose of the future EROS User Group (EUG) will be three-fold:
- Provide operational users of EROS products and services with an opportunity and platform to discuss opinions, needs, and concerns in a structured and consistent manner;
- Provide EROS projects with a consistent platform for targeted communications and opportunity for direct feedback from the user community on product- and service-related developments; and
- Support the USGS production of highest possible quality products and services through the routine collection and incorporation of user feedback into EROS development & operations.
Initial implementation of the EROS User Group will consist of an email "list-serv" to provide direct notification of upcoming product- and service-related briefings and discussion topics. Once approved, EUG members will be provided access to USGS briefings on selected topics related to current or future product/service developments. Beta release versions of interfaces and/or future product samples may be shared with the EUG community, to allow for improved user dialogue and integration of end user feedbacks into the development cycle.
Most EUG meetings are expected to consist of a short (1-hour) discussion to be held quarterly (every 3 months) and will be conducted remotely via telecon/online. Additional opportunities for face-to-face discussions may also be announced as available.
To join the EROS User Group (EUG) mailing list and help USGS to provide the best possible remote sensing products and systems, please send an email message to EROS User Services (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We look forward to your participation!
