Next Generation Architectures for Earth Observation Data

This video explains the challenges faced when managing vast quantities of satellite data, for the benefit of humankind, to address a range of environmental, social and agricultural issues.

This video, produced by Redboat, introduces the architecture of the Australian Geoscience Data Cube as a key tool for unlocking Earth observation satellite data, to better manage and store vast amounts of data.

The Data Cube has already been used to for understanding water observations from Space and its related application for better flood management.

The video also provides a case study of developing a satellite data management infrastructure for Kenya.

This video was used to launch Australia’s tenure as the Chair of the Committee of Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS) at the 2015 Plenary CEOS meeting held in Kyoto, Japan in November 2015.
