Regular visitors to the GeoConnections Web site will notice its new look.

Its focus having shifted from program information to services, it now integrates the GeoConnections Discovery Portal (formerly CEONet).

Upcoming changes to the site will reflect your feedback, our evolution and the development of new technologies.

The new Site Map will assist you in finding links and pages. Bookmarks may need updating, as certain Web pages have been relocated.
