Have you ever wondered how to access some of the AusCover remotely sensed data which is available on the NCI using some of the available web services directly within your analysis environment?

This webinar will give several examples using both the virtual desktop infrastructure as well as direct access using opendap on thredds where you'll be able to query and directly interact with Himawari and Landsat datasets in both iPython notebooks and in GIS packages.

By the end of the webinar, you’ll be able to discover some of the many data sets openly availableon the NCI and query them using web services.
