The CEOS Future Data Access and Analysis Architecture (FDA) initiative has resulted in a range of new approaches for Earth observation (EO) data access and analysis being deployed globally by CEOS Agencies. Many of the pilot activities are now practical implementations with new standards for Analysis Ready Data (ARD), advanced user-programmable Exploitation Platforms, and vast amounts of data readily available on cloud platforms with open source analytics tools like the CEOS Open Data Cube (ODC). Many of these components allow user algorithms to be brought to the data, rather than having to download and run locally, thus opening new opportunities for researchers, industry, and government use. The FDA ecosystem is still evolving and challenging to navigate, and the CEOS Working Groups are collaborating closely to make it simpler to not only discover EO data, but also to exploit it using the various elements of FDA.
