The GEOSS Standards and interoperability Registry, is a reference database of interoperability arrangements that are meant to be used to foster GEOSS interoperability and can be associated with registered GEOSS components and their services. A web-based user interface allows users to browse or perform detailed searches on the registry’s holding. The registry may also be accessed via standard search protocols. Although GEO encourages the use of open international standards, GEOSS must also accommodate the use of non-standard practices. Thus, the Standards Registry also contains information on these non-standard practices, what are called “special arrangements.” The process for entering special arrangements into the Standards Registry is handled by the Standards and Interoperability Forum (SIF).

The GEOSS Components and Services Registry is a directory of systems, initiatives, and projects (known as “Components”) that are committed by GEO country members and participating organizations, for which interactive, typically Web-based interoperable services can be described. The registration of this organizational and service-oriented information supports browse and search by users — project managers and software integrators — to evaluate available earth observation systems and their suitability and accessibility for a specific application domain.
