CSIRO, Geoscience Australia, FrontierSI and Symbios Communications for Earth Observation for Climate Smart Innovation

This initiative strengthened regional collaboration between Australian and Southeast Asian scientists, students and innovators to build market interest for products and services that use geospatial technology and Earth observation to address the impacts of climate change. The initiative deployed a new, in-region, high-performance Earth observation analysis platform powered by CSIRO’s Earth Analytics Science and Innovation (EASI) technology. This provided a foundational technical capability to enable users from Australian and Southeast Asia to take advantage of Earth observation data and the advances of commercial cloud computing, without the need for local storage or supercomputing infrastructure. Judges said that this was a very worthwhile initiative covering a broad range of projects with diverse reach of participation and certainly overcame some significant barriers.
