A Body of Knowledge (BoK) for EO/GI

EO4GEO is developing an innovative resource describing an ontology for the EO/GI fields.

The existing Geographic Information Science and Technology Body of Knowledge (GI S&T BoK), developed by the GI-N2K project on the basis of the American University Consortium for Geographic Information Science, is the basis for the development and operationalization of the EO4GEO Body of Knowledge (BoK).

Describing the Geographic Information and Earth Observation domain should be done by defining the underpinning inter-related concepts (theories, methods, technologies, etc.) that should be covered in education and training curricula. 

Accessing and editing the BoK

BoK Visualization and Search

Tool to graphically and textually visualise, explore and navigate the BoK. It supports permalinks, versioning and advanced searching.

More information >

Living Textbook

Our BoK is maintained and edited using the Living Textbook environment. This tool offers a view on the knowledge network through a concept map, combined with text.

Working with the BoK

The EO4GEO BoK software Platform stores, serves and is the main entry point for the official release of the BoK. It offers online storage, permalinks, versioning, re-usable software components and an API.
