Digital Earth Australia, a ground-breaking open source platform, transforms spatial data and satellite imagery into easily accessible tools for planning and decision making, and relies on AARNet for moving data around the research community.
Thanks to a new agreement between CENIC and the City of Alameda in Northern California, students will get to work with first-of-its-kind data captured from autonomous ocean vehicles studying everything from marine wildlife to climate models.
From ancient times to the present, strong and catastrophic quakes have caused tremendous destruction in the territory of Azerbaijan. High-speed Internet is essential in order to process information about earthquakes.
Researchers at the University of California San Diego used satellite images from multiple sources to map and understand city growth patterns in India, with the help of computers trained to distinguish types of growth. The technology is also being used to identify refugee camps and schools in Africa.
For the first time, air pollution from individual cities and built-up areas can be detected from space. The European Sentinel-5 Precursor Earth observation satellite sends ultra precise measurement data to ground stations in Norway and Canada.
Frequent in arid regions, dust storms can have devastating effects. Powered by R&E connectivity, monitoring and simulations equip scientists to better predict them and assist authorities in issuing alerts to help people, particularly asthma sufferers, take protective action.
