Satellite imagery at work Government
Informing decisions, from council to Commonwealth
Relevant, accurate and up-to-date spatial information is an essential resource for Australia’s public sector.
Through the Digital Earth Australia (DEA) program, any public or private project can now call upon petabytes of pre-processed satellite imagery and analysis ready data for free. The data can be viewed on a map, downloaded, or imported as a web service for use on other platforms. It’s information that’s been calibrated and validated according to international standards and provided as open source products.
Our data products help authorities keep an eye on our beaches, manage megalitres of water, and support economic accounting.
