The Earth Observation Requirements Evaluation System (EORES) is a web-based application being designed and built to store, manage, and analyze information about Earth observing capabilities, system-independent user requirements, and agency mission value trees. The application consists of a spatially-enabled relational database and a web-based graphical user interface for browsing, editing, and querying information. EORES is also being designed to export information to several external analytical and visualization tools.

EORES is being jointed developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Technology, Planning and Integration for Observations (TPIO) Program and the United States Geological Survey (USGS) Requirements, Capabilities and Analysis for Earth Observations (RCA-EO) Office.

Both TPIO and RCA-EO support their parent agencies in understanding and managing their Earth observing portfolios. EORES will be a critical tool in performing this task. In addition, EORES will be used as the repository of information collected in support of the second Earth Observation Assessment being conducted by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.
