Earth observing technology was used in civilian fields since the initial part of 1970s.Satellites ground stations are the basic establishments of earth observation system and basic source of space data,and they play the role of public data flat in national economic construction activities,and their development got wide attentions of governments.There 21 ground stations in different countries were investigated in this paper,including America,the Europe,Japan,Canada and Australia,etc.The properties,distribution characteristics,management system,personnel size and data types received of overseas satellites ground stations were analyzed in this paper.The results showed these overseas satellites ground stations had automatization,commercial,marke-oriented,civilian,internationalization,systematization,net-oriented operation characteristics.Future development direction of satellites ground stations was put forward in this paper.

Key words:  Remote sensing      Ground station      Satellite      Distribution      Operation
