Open Data Cube

The Open Data Cube (ODC) is a global initiative to increase the value and use of satellite data by providing users with access to free and open data management technologies and analysis platforms.

Applying free and open satellite data to environmental, economic and social challenges has the potential to deliver information and applications that have great impact at local, regional and global scales. Advances in cloud computing, and the availability of free and open technologies such as the Open Data Cube, mean that developing countries without the local infrastructure to process large volumes of satellite data can access data and computing power to build relevant applications and inform decision making.

Digital Earth Australia is the Australian government's implementation of the open source analysis platform developed as part of the Open Data Cube (ODC) initiative. The DEA program contributes code, documentation, How-to guides, tutorials, and support to international users of the Open Data Cube.
