Since 2010, JSC Russian Space Systems is a member of WGCV and takes an active part in its annual meetings, and since 2013 is a member of WGISS.
The WGISS activity is aimed at providing end users with maximum access to satellite data from different space systems. With this in mind, the WGISS members are engaged in elaborating the recommendations on unification and upgrading of existing and future geoinformation systems and services based on the international standards.
