Tourism plays an increasingly important role in many OECD economies. How can its impact on the economy and its potential for job creation be measured? The Tourism Satellite Account and the Employment Module - two new economic instruments designed by the OECD’s Tourism Committee - provide insights into the socio-economic impact, structure and development of activities related to tourism. For the first time, Measuring the Role of Tourism in OECD Economies: The OECD Manual on Tourism Satellite Accounts and Employment reports on the most recent national experiences in implementing Tourism Satell

In recent years, several private companies trying to establish international communications satellite systems have expressed concerns about the existence of competitive disadvantages that inhibit their entry into the market. Because of the interest in fostering competition in telecommunications, this report (1) describes the institutional framework for providing international communications satellite services, (2) identifies elements of that framework that appear to hinder competition, and (3) discusses some of the key options that could resolve the competitive issues identified. Charts and ta

In the 8 years since a contract was awarded, the National Polar-Orbiting Operational Environ. Satellite System (NPOESS) -- a tri-agency program managed by NOAA, DoD, and NASA -- has experienced escalating costs, schedule delays, and ineffective interagency mgmt. The launch date for a demo. satellite has been delayed by 5 years and the cost estimate for the program has more than doubled. In Feb. 2010, NPOESS was disbanded, and, instead, the agencies have undertaken separate acquisitions. This report: (1) assessed efforts to establish separate satellite programs; (2) evaluated the status and ris

Cable TV companies faced little competition in the market for subscription video service until 1994, when a new generation of satellite service known as direct broadcast satellite (DBS) was introduced. Since late 1999, DBS operators are now permitted & have begun to offer local broadcast signals in many markets throughout the U.S. This report provides information on the extent to which the level of subscribership (or penetrationÓ) of DBS has influenced cable rates, & other key factors that may influence the level of cable rates. Also provides a brief history of the subscription video market.

Inventory and monitoring of coastal aquaculture and fisheries structures provide important baseline data for decision-making in planning and development, including regulatory laws, environmental protection and revenue collection. Mapping these structures can be performed with good accuracy and at regular intervals by satellite remote sensing, which allows observation of vast areas, often of difficult accessibility, at a fraction of cost of traditional surveys. This study is based on interpretation of satellite imaging radar data and a detailed image analysis procedure is described. The report

Environmental satellites provide data that are used for forecasting the weather, measuring variations in climate over time, and predicting space weather. In planning for the next generation of these satellites, federal agencies originally sought to fulfill weather, climate, and space weather requirements. However, in 2006, federal agencies restructured two key satellite acquisitions. This involved removing key climate and space weather instruments. This report: (1) assessed plans for restoring the capabilities that were removed from the two key satellite acquisitions; and (2) evaluated federal
