| GOFC-GOLD Working Groups
networks provide a forum for users and researchers operating
in (or with an interest in) a common geographic area,
and represent a link between national agencies and user
groups and the global user/producer community. They
provide a mechanism for sharing of resources and expertise,
and perform an essential cross-cutting role in the implementation
and integration of GOFC-GOLD's thematic components.
all parts of the world may be represented by regional
networks, nor is it necessary for agencies or groups
to join a regional network in order to contribute to,
or participate in GOFC-GOLD. However, they do provide
important visibility and credibility to the organizations
which participate in them.
