  1. 1. AusCover FacilityThe Remote Sensing Data & Validation FacilityPresentation by Alex Held – Facility Director
  2. 2. Facility ObjectivesProduction and delivery ofnationally consistent long‐timeseries of satellite‐based biophysicalmap products and next generationremote sensing research data thatis validated for Australianconditions.
  3. 3. Science Questions• How, in space and time, have key environmental variables changed over the period of satellite image archives for Australia? • AusCover portal will deliver several spatially explicit datasets on several biophysical variables measured via remote sensing
  4. 4. Science Questions• How, in space and time, have key environmental variables changed over the period of satellite image archives for Australia? • AusCover portal will deliver several spatially explicit datasets on several biophysical variables measured via remote sensing• Can we measure at regional scales the relative benefits/impacts of legislated environmental management programs on Australias major land and coastal ecosystems? • Derived datasets will be produced at various levels of spatial resolution to allow for investigation into different types of impacts
