Virtual launch of the Earth Observation for Climate Smart Innovation (EOSCI) project. This project will deploy a new Earth observation analysis platform powered by CSIRO’s Earth Analytics Science and Innovation hub (EASI) based on Open Data Cube technology. The new platform will be used to engage local government, business and education institutions to take advantage of Earth observation for the development of climate smart applications in South East Asia. This event is held in association with the 14th Asia Oceania GEO symposium. The project is an Australian initiative in collaboration with regional partners.
