NOAA has another webinar coming up on July 25, 2014 on the Law and Policies that Apply to NOAA International Agreements. This is a good webinar to try to attend as it gives a look not only into meteorological and oceanic weather data but the sharing of data across other disciplines like GIS/Geomatics and the sharing of image and LiDAR and other Remote Sensing data.
