We Are Building Australia’s Research Data Infrastructure

The Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC) provides Australian researchers with access to national research data collections, cloud computing, platforms and digital research skills training.

For over 10 years, we have been supporting Australian earth and environmental sciences researchers as they tackle big challenges for our planet, from fighting climate change to saving threatened species and reversing ecosystem deterioration.

We work with all universities in Australia, research institutes, government agencies, overseas organisations and more.

Our Resources for Earth and Environmental Science Researchers

Through a number of our services and co-investment projects, we provide earth and environmental science researchers with access to trusted data assets, free digital research tools and upskilling materials. Here are 3 of our top resources:

ARDC Jupyter Notebook Service
