Accessing Space Data Series: Microsoft

December 8, 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

The Australian Space Data Analysis Facility is hosting a three (3) part online series called “Accessing Space Data” where we explore the ways that you can access available space data and provide you with the resources and tools to freely explore how you can unlock space data – whether it’s in your day to day life, business and operations, or to contribute to your product ideation!

In the next three months, ASDAF invites notable vendors that will showcase their space data capabilities and technologies relevant to the current space landscape in a webinar form. This event is highly recommended for space data enthusiasts, businesses looking to improve or expand on a commercially interesting idea, or just any one who is interested in exploring what space data can do for you.

For our second round of guests in our online series, ASDAF invites Dr. Trevor Dhu and Nicholas Moretti to explore what opportunities Microsoft offers to Australian businesses in accessing and commercializing space and earth observation data.
