  • This video explains the concept behind Geoscience Australia's Data Cube, a new way of organising, analysing and managing the large amounts of data collected from Earth Observation Satellites (EOS) studies over time. The Data Cube facilitates efficient data analysis and enables users to interrogate Australia's EOS data from the past and present. It is hoped that the Data Cube will become a useful tool used by remote sensing scientists and data analysts to extract information to support for informing future decision-making and policy development within Australia.

  • Geoscience Australia is providing extensive advice, expertise and support to the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB). The ATSB is leading a seabed mapping and underwater search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370 in the southern Indian Ocean. Bathymetry is the study and mapping of the sea floor. It involves obtaining measurements of the depth of the ocean and is equivalent to mapping on land. Before the underwater search for MH370 could begin, it was necessary to accurately map the sea floor to ensure that the search is undertaken safely and effectively. Bathymetry survey vessels spent months at sea, scanning the sea floor with multibeam sonar to gather detailed, high-resolution data. The data has revealed many seabed features for the first time. This computer-animated 'flythrough' shows a visualisation of some of the sea floor terrain in the search area.

  • This ~3 minute movie is about the two 1:100 000 scale maps of the West MacDonnell Ranges near Alice Springs in the Northern Territory. The maps are a collaboration with Parks Australia, NT Tourism and NT Governmentland management authorities. The movie includes a flythrough; and images and footage from NT Tourism. The flythrough is created using World Wind software and satellite imagery.

  • The Collaborative East Antarctic Marine Census (CEAMARC) voyage was conducted on the Aurora Australis between December 2007 and January 2008. The voyage was operated as part of the Census of Antarctic Marine Life (CAML) program to document the benthic communities and their associated habitats across the George V Shelf in east Antarctica. Underwater video footage was collected from 22 sites across the shelf using Geoscience Australia's Deep Under Water Camera (DUCII). Transects were run for 15-40 minutes across depths ranging from 140 m to 1200 m. All video footage is stamped with the UTC time. Stations are named according to the CEAMARC station number followed by the instrument used (eg. CAM for camera) and then the deployment number. For example 09CAM05 was deployed at CEAMARC site 9 and was the 5th camera transect. The location and depth of each station is listed below. For further information on this survey please refer to the post-survey report (GA Record 2009/05 - Geocat #67381).

  • As the Platinum sponsor of the International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium in 2013 (IGARSS 2013), Geoscience Australia had the opportunity to create a short movie, to be shown during the conference opening, highlighting the importance of the geosciences to society, and the incredible importance of remote sensing to the geosciences, both in Australia and globally. This is the text we intend to put on the YouTube page. The movie format is 1080p MPEG4 AVC(H264)/AAC. Other formats can be provided.
