Earth Observation (Research) Infrastructure for Australia - to 2026

Hosted by Professor Stuart Phinn

At the recent NCRIS - Greater Impact Through Environmental Infrastructure Symposium a session was run on 17 May 2017 for Integrating Earth Observation for essential Environmental Monitoring in Australia.   This was a well-attended session but, unfortunately, we ran out of time to complete a full discussion and review of the presented material (see copy of presentation).

The discussion we did have highlighted the fact that our community needs to further identify and discuss EO infrastructure challenges and how to address them, so this was a significant first step that will enable us to do that (as soon as we can!).

Our discussion will build a response to the recently released 2016 National Research Infrastructure Roadmap, the document that lays the foundation for future investment in national research infrastructure over the next 10 years.  This document highlights the critical importance of Australia increasing its exploitation of earth observation data, from satellites as well as other sources, and the need for strong national coordination and community engagement.  

It is essential we build on momentum established at the workshop, along with directions of the Australian Earth Observation Community Plan, existing NCRIS EO research Infrastructure Capabilities (e.g. TERN, IMOS. AusSCOPE) and Commonwealth Government initiatives.

coordinated effort will help us establish what the essential EOS Research Infrastructure requirements are across our diverse communities and to address these using the forthcoming NCRIS Roadmap scoping and implementation processes.

A working group has been initiated to coordinate these efforts, all details are and will continue to be available on this website

We are also gathering YOUR input to the discussion via an on-line survey.
