Satellite imagery to inform Australia
See the big picture. Make better decisions.
We provide trusted imagery and data about Australian landscapes to researchers and land managers, helping them navigate environmental complexity
We’re working with the rural sector to make satellite imagery more accessible and relevant for the benefit of crops, cattle, and country
In the face of fire, flood and natural hazards, our satellite partnerships put eyes in the sky, helping Australians monitor, predict, prepare, and respond

Finding water to fight fire
Satellite data maps of Australian waterbodies are fuelling a more confident flightpath for Victoria’s Country Fire Authority.
It was at a remote sensing workshop that I heard a seminar by Dr Claire Krause from Geoscience Australia. She gave a presentation on the all the DEA data products, and I was just amazed.
