Whole of Community Meeting #11

Presented by Commonwealth and State Government EO Program Directors and Staff, CSIRO EO Program Directors, CRC Si, University researchers, Private Industry and Non-government groups.


This webinar focussed on several major national initiatives that will have significant impacts on the longevity and funding provided for us to grow government and industry EO in Australia over the next 10-20 years. Timing of national inputs to these processes is limited, so it is essential we provide a community level response as effectively as possible!

This meeting covered a wide range of topics including our first highly successful technical webinar (see Accessing AusCover Data Webinar) and where to next with that, as well as upcoming CEOS and industry events!

We heard updates on:

  • The Australian Earth Observation Community Plan,

  • The National Research Infrastructure Capability Issues Paper” and the “2026 Spatial Industry Growth Agenda”,

  • The Australian Earth Observation Symposium,

  • The Australian Government Earth Observation from Space Working Group (Geoscience Australia, Bureau of Meteorology, Geoscience Australia),

  • CEOS Australian activities for 2016,

  • International and national EO progress,

  • Developing Government-Research Industry Partnerships to reduce risk.
