Cloud computing with Open Data Cube and Python

25 Apr 2022 One-minute read

This workshop broadly covered remote sensing data analysis using the Open Data Cube (ODC), developed by Geoscience Australia. We went over some important Python packages that the ODC is built upon: Numpy, Xarray, and Dask, and explored how they enable fast and scalable computation.

All the learning material used in this tutorial is available on the Digital Earth Australia Sandbox as Jupyter Notebooks. An account was required to participate, which can easily be created here.

Additional documentation for the DEA Sandbox is available here which includes useful guides, a dataset catalogue and examples.

If you missed the demonstration, the recording is available on our cloudstor site, email to get access.
