CEOS Development Environment


WGCapD officially began in 2012, with the convening of WGCapD-1, but the working group emerged from another working group, WGEdu. The addition of Data Democracy was first broached under CSIR’s chairmanship in 2008 and was carried forward with GISTDA and INPE. The integration of Data Democracy was discussed at the 2011 plenary, when CEOS agreed to create the WGCBDD or WGCapD.
