AbstractThe Canada Centre for Remote Sensing (CCRS) has operated an information system, called GCNet, since 1990. The system is being used regularly by the Canadian and international resource managers, global change researchers and scientists in order to locate earth observation data sets in Canada or abroad. This paper will present an overview of the GCNet system capabilities, including access to the International Directory Network, the QUERY Image Inventory and the PlaNet bulletin board. Statistics on the utilization of GCNet will also be presented. Future developments in the area of data management at CCRS will also be examined: on-line access to digital browse; international catalogue interoperability and links with other projects such as the Land Information Network for Canada (LINC) developed by the Surveys, Mapping and Remote Sensing Sector (SMRSS) of Natural Resources Canada, and the Canadian Earth Observation Network (CEONet).
