The problem of making a flood of remote sensing data readily accessible to a growing international community of global-change researchers and policy makers is discussed.

Called the Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS), it will manage the mountains of EOS and Earth-science satellite data and will also handle the harvesting and sharing of information, the dissemination of ideas, and the establishment of a community of collaborators that will be professionally close-knit but geographically dispersed both in the United States and elsewhere
