Earth monitoring WG network topology 
& networking for other EO data 
GOIN (Global Observation Information Network) was 
established in 1993 by joint efforts of Japan (JST/NASDA) and 
US (NSF/NASA). As GOIN99 is the final year on their 
activities, and they are planning to make a multilateral 
framework of network (both computer and human). Therefore 
the future involvement of APAN in the CEOS/GOIN framework 
has been discussed quite intensively. 
In Network Sub-group meeting of G01N99, held at East West 
Center of Hawaii University on 24 March 1999, future 
commitment and role of APAN Earth Monitoring WG in the 
CEOS/GOIN framework was discussed, followed by the 
presentation on the current activities and future collaboration of 
the Earth Monitoring WG (Fujita, 1999b). 
A recommendation to include this APAN WG as a contact point 
for 'food security applications' within Network Sub-group was 
drafted at the Joint Program Working Group of GOIN99. 
The Earth Monitoring and Disaster Warning Working Group of 
APAN is invited to participate GOIN/COES meeting held at 
Birmingham on 12-14 September 1999. 
As conclusions, the following headlines are highlighted for the 
future WG goal. 
1. WG focuses on the specific applications on DMSP and 
2. WG leads user ID missions to develop user communities for 
3. WG enhances collaboration with earth observation missions 
on networking 
4. WG aims at to be a gateway between earth observation 
missions and users 
With the given opportunity of contacts with GOIN/CEOS, the 
WG focuses more one food security which has been already 
accomplished by fishery resource monitoring using by DMSP 
night time products monitoring nightly fishing boats.
