The Digital Earth Australia (DEA) Sandbox is a learning and analysis environment for getting started with DEA data and our Open Data Cube. It includes sample data and Jupyter notebooks that demonstrate the capability of the Open Data Cube. The Sandbox is free to use.

Create a DEA Sandbox account or log in here

Once you have created a Sandbox account, a verification code will be sent to the email address you registered with. After signing in, the Sandbox will prepare a JupyterLab environment for you. All necessary software is provided as part of this environment, so no additional installation or configuration is required.

Get the docs and system updates

Updates on data currently available for the Sandbox can be seen through the  Digital Earth Australia Sandbox Explorer tool. GitHub Notebooks can be found here.
