ESDIS Standards Office (ESO) - Reviews

NASA's Earth Science Data and Information System (ESDIS) Standards Office (ESO) conducts reviews of proposed standards, practices, and technical information relevant to the ESDIS Project mission. Documents are reviewed as part of the ESDIS Project's standards process. Approved documents are published and listed on the Standards Requirements and References page.
