We are a collective group that provides a coordinating and sharing point for all people using images collected from satellite, airborne or any other platform (Earth Observation) for any purpose in Australia.

We cover research, private industry, government, education and non-government activities. This covers people working across all natural and built environments, spanning, the earth’s atmosphere, terrestrial, aquatic, urban and marine environments.

This group was formed to enable ALL of the people who collect and use earth observation data to have a forum to present and discuss their activities and define their needs for support from industry, academia and government. This is not a government focused, spatial-science special interest group. It is meant to span all disciplines and provide an inclusive and collaborative resource to improve access to and use of earth observation data for Australia. 

The AEOCCG reports to the Australian Government Earth Observation from Space Working Group (AGEOSWG) as required by Australia's satellite utilisation policy.
