The Imagery theme focuses on foundation data which captures images of the Earths surface, from many different sensors and cameras. This data is often the base layer over which many other datasets are used.
Imagery gives an analytical source and background layer for decision making in many areas including :
Mapping; topographic features, bathymetry, feature extraction for other fundamental datasets
Emergency Services; Monitoring active and/or recent fires, flood and storm events
Natural resource management; Biomass, native vegetation and agriculture, managing conservation areas
Geosciences; Geoscience resources,
Sustainable human and land use development; auditing urban development
