Assisted by TERN data infrastructure, the Queensland government has released Australia’s first comprehensive state-wide regional ecosystem maps, providing unparalleled detailed online information on the status of Queensland’s diverse native vegetation.
Seven decades of long-term monitoring data from the Alps, now openly available via TERN infrastructure, are not only increasing our understanding of impacts such as fire, grazing and exotic species invasions, but also informing land-management decisions by government agencies and private enterprise and helping document a small but important part of the Alps’ natural heritage.
The third annual Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) for Remote Sensing conference was on last month, and we were at the heart of the action discussing the latest technology and how best to continue providing world-leading remote sensing infrastructure and collaborative networks to support the use of UAS in characterising and monitoring environmental change.
Fellow NCRIS project, the Australian National Data Service (ANDS), is hosting a series of events discussing drones, spatial data and geospatial technology. TERN is pleased to be a part of these events and will be presenting on how researchers can use TERN services to make drone data open for scientific research.
TERN has joined forces with the Atlas of Living Australia (ALA) and Biodiversity and Climate Change Virtual Laboratory (BCCVL) to deliver a new training program that builds on our past educational achievements and provides the training required to further incorporate NCRIS-developed services, capabilities and expertise into Australia’s higher education and research sector.
