Digital Earth Australia and Urban Planning


If you’re involved in shaping cities, towns and regions that are environmentally, socially and economically sustainable, then we would love to hear from you.

As urban populations continue to grow and present robust new challenges, Geoscience Australia’s Digital Earth Australia platform can assist in the efficient development of communities accommodating for growth and revitalising physical facilities in cities and metropolitan areas.

The opportunities for satellite imagery to drive growth and improvement within Australia’s urban planning sector are expansive – in efficiency, environmental management, and ultimately profitability, its potential is significant – but so is the knowledge and familiarity gap between technology providers and potential users.

Digital Earth Australia welcomes businesses, educators, innovators, and individuals into this essential conversation. If you would like to learn more or understand how EO technology can drive growth and improvement in the Urban Planning sector, then we welcome all suggestions and questions.
