I am pleased to announce Stage 2 of the IEEE: Committee on Earth
Observation (ICEO) competition to create a computer/video game related
to using Earth Observations to solve a myriad of environmental issues,
and demonstrating how real-world events and big issues affect the Earth
and impact its people.
Ten entries will be selected as finalists on November 1, 2010, and those
games will be put on display at the ICEO's major conference in Beijing.
The entries must be playable, but need not be complete.
One overall winner will be chosen from the ten finalists, with the prize
being *$20,000 US*.
What are these big issues? According to the international Group on Earth
of 76 countries (www.earthobservations.org), Earth faces big challenges
in nine societal
areas, called the “challenge areas”:
• Disaster Relief/Response,
• Water Conservation,
• Weather Systems,
Through the competition, our desire is that citizens of the earth learn
the valuable lessons of earth
observation and the application of this knowledge to preserve and
conserve our planets resources.
The three major objectives of this contest are:
• Provide broader visibility and understanding of the availability and
benefits of Earth Systems Information globally, particularly in a
younger generation audience (in the 9-18 year age range) in both
developed and developing countries
• Stimulate participation and interest in Earth information systems
