Australians Ban Together to Form Earth Observation Coordination Group

This group was formed to enable all of the people who collect and use earth observation data to have a forum to present and discuss their activities and define their needs for support from industry, academia and government. This is not a government focussed, spatial-science special interest group. It is meant to span all disciplines and provide an inclusive and collaborative resource to improve access to and use of earth observation data for Australia.

AIMS

The AEOCG aims to provide a national forum for regular communication and coordination of earth observation data collection, distribution and validation across all relevant federal and state government agencies, research agencies, universities, private sector and non-government organisations.

GOALS

The goals of AEOCG are to establish:

  • the range of activities in Australia that are using earth observation data,
  • the requirements for improving earth observation data collection and sharing,
  • the requirements for improving earth observation data analysis, and
  • to report the findings of meetings to the Coordination Group

GROUP ACTIVITIES

AEOCG is made up of any person in Australia involved in activities using Earth Observation Data who wishes to participate.  If you would like to be involved and contribute, join the group.  The group will meet annually, and all interested parties are invited to participate, using open–space technology approaches and in a virtual setting to enable as many people as possible to participate for minimal cost.

Scope of Activities

AEOCG provides a broad base of national level involvement at all levels of EOS activities to complement and inform the proposed Commonwealth Government  EO activity and policy setting, so it has a focus on state and national government agencies and research, private sector or non-government groups.
