294833 From Africa to Australia – A Digital Earth Journey
Digital Earth Africa (DE Africa) will enable African nations to track changes across their countries and the continent in unprecedented detail. Based largely on openly available satellite data and leveraging technology and services developed in collaboration with Geoscience Australia and the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS), DE Africa will provide insights on a wide range of issues, including floods, drought, soils, coastal erosion, agriculture, forests, land use, water availability and quality, as well as changes to human settlements. DE Africa is supported by the Group on Earth Observations (GEO), a partnership of more than 100 member countries and 130 partners that envision a future where decisions and actions for the benefit of humankind are informed by coordinated, comprehensive and sustained Earth observations. This session will cover how the initiative fits within the GEO Work Programme, successes from related projects and how the platform operates on AWS.
