The IEEE Committee on Earth Observation (ICEO) is an international committee of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) that, according to its website, is focused on improving "living conditions, particularly in developing countries, through the development of [Global Earth Observation System of Systems] GEOSS."[1] The IEEE member base, such as systems of systems (SoS) engineers, communications specialists, and standards and information applications developers, embody GEOSS to shape a "global resource for decision makers at all levels."[1]

The ICEO states it is "an applications-oriented effort that spans the totality of engineering concepts that are the lifeblood of practicing engineers. The design, development, and implementation of [GEOSS] will bring to play a wide cross section of talent from many of IEEE Societies e.g. systems, remote sensing, computers, communications, standards, renewable energy, etc."[2]

The intergovernmental Group on Earth Observations (GEO) organization is a major participant of ICEO. Its vision for GEOSS, supported by ICEO, is "to realize a future wherein decisions and actions for the benefit of humankind are informed via coordinated, comprehensive, and sustained Earth observations and information."[3]

The ICEO was one of several organizations that hosted more than twenty workshops held in Korea, South Africa, China, France, the United States, India, Costa Rica, and Chile for GEOSS international professionals involved in IEEE technology development.[2]
