Data applications employing global mid-resolution
satellite imagery provide a wide range of significant societal
benefits. The Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and
Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) has enabled noteworthy
contributions to be made in all societal benefit categories that
were established by the Group on Earth Observations to guide
development of the Global Earth Observation System of
Systems. Examples of ASTER utility highlight the positive
results achieved through well-crafted policies, responsive
system implementation teams, and skilled researchers. Such
models may serve as guides for future mission planning.
