Wednesday Seminar Series – Public Talk
Digital Earth Australia – From Satellites to Insights
Wednesday, 30th May 2018
Sir Harold Raggatt Theatre, Geoscience Australia
Cnr Jerrabomberra Avenue and Hindmarsh Drive
In the 2018-19 Budget, the Australian Government announced an ongoing, multi-million dollar investment in Digital Earth Australia (DEA) to provide government and businesses unprecedented access to satellite imagery tailored for Australia.
From helping to manage water in the Murray-Darling Basin through to helping farmers increase the productivity of their land – the potential uses of DEA are almost unlimited. This talk will showcase how DEA is already being used to identify and manage environmental changes across our vast continent as well as outlining how this innovative digital infrastructure will be used by businesses to develop new applications for sectors across the entire Australian economy.
Dr Trevor Dhu is the Acting Branch Head for Geoscience Australia’s National Earth and Marine Observations Branch and has led the Digital Earth Australia Program for the last 3 years. Trevor is passionate about bridging the gap between research, policy and industry and has worked throughout the Asia-Pacific in fields including disaster management, international development and environmental modelling.
This talk is presented as part of the Wednesday Seminar Series.
