Abstract

Geoscience Australia's National Earth Observation Group commissioned this study through the Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information. The primary aim of this study was to determine the value of Earth observation from space activities to the Australian economy. The three main objectives of this study were to: 1. estimate the direct and indirect economic value of space based Earth Observation activities to the Australian community in 2008-09 year 2. determine the direct and indirect economic impact of an unplanned denial of all Earth Observation data to the Australian economy in 2008-09 year 3. identify contemplated large-scale government applications of Earth Observation data and estimate their direct and indirect economic value. In subsequent discussions it was agreed that the report would also provide an estimate of the size of the Earth observation from space industry, particularly the small-medium enterprise sector in the 2008-09 financial year. The scope of this report did not include the value of Earth observation from space services for national security or defence.
