The Commonwealth of Virginia has several key needs addressed with space-based remote sensing data. The Commonwealth has many experts in remote sensing observations, data analysis, and data archival and dissemination working in independent groups on a range of research topics. Our thesis is that information from data sources can be more efficiently exploited to support real time decision making by problem stakeholders. While the title of our study includes space we envision the use of space, airborne, terrestrial, maritime sensors, and a variety of data sources e.g., weather, traffic reports to support these problems. Our goal is to obtain necessary data from information sources associated with a given problem problem centric and integrate this data into a single process for data mining and exploitation. We anticipate improvement in the timeliness and effectiveness of actions taken by stakeholders, based on the exploitation of those data. Given the proliferation of remote sensing capabilities, information sources, and information technology enablers such as the internet-of-things, this is a logical next step for an Information Based Economy, such as the Commonwealth.
