Agricultural research data in Australia is currently difficult to find and share, and publicly available datasets (such as remote sensed vegetation data) and cloud compute facilities are not easily accessible by all researchers.
The AgReFed Platform project will improve the discoverability of trusted, reusable and analysis-ready agricultural research data across Australia supporting collaboration and novel insights in research, development and policy.
It will do this through analysis of key use cases to establish the needs of the community, and the subsequent expansion and enhancement of the current AgReFed Platform.
Who is this project for?
- Researchers across disciplines who use a number of agricultural online services,
- local and federal government,
- research organisations who have a need for agricultural data,
- farmers’ organisations,
What does this project enable?
The ability to search and discover trusted, reusable agriculture-related datasets, workflows and models. This will facilitate data reuse and cross-discipline collaborations for novel research insights and practical applications in policy, reporting and on-ground decision making.
