Big Spatial Data - Data Scientist Required
As part of a jointly funded and multi-faceted initiative, a data scientist is required to develop and demonstrate a toolkit that will apply the continental-scale time-series of Landsat observations to typical problems in environmental assessment and natural resources management.
The two key components of the toolkit are:
- The capacity to serve time series of Earth observation data/information products as a web service; and
- The capacity to generate automated reports based on existing data pre-defined spatial areas from petabyte scale raster datasets
The successful applicant will be employed by the Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information (CRCSI) to provide the National Earth Observation Group within Geoscience Australia located in Canberra, ACT with the necessary skills.
Full Position Description and Applications Details
Masters Scholarship at the School of Surveying and Geospatial Engineering, University of New South Wales
A number of research challenges associated with the Next Generation Geodetic Datum for Australia and New Zealand will be addressed across several different projects by a team of researchers. This student will be expected to work closely with partners in the Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information, including several state government lands/spatial agencies, Geoscience Australia, and Land Information New Zealand. The research will answer the question: What are the regulatory and administrative impediments to dynamic datum implementation with respect to State, Territory and Commonwealth Legislation and business processes?
Applicants are required to have a background of a Bachelor/Masters Degree in Engineering, Science, Public Policy or Business.
Research Assistant for CRC-SI Project 1.02 - School of Civil & Environmental Engineering, University of NSW
In the future, full exploitation of GNSS technology for high accuracy positioning applications in Australia and New Zealand will rely on the successful implementation of a next generation geodetic datum.
Changing from a geocentric datum primarily defined in terms of passive ground marks, and the periodic simultaneous adjustment of mostly terrestrial observations, to a modern geometric datum that is dependent on processes and technologies to accurately monitor its relationship to the global International Terrestrial Reference System (ITRS), is a paradigm shift in national geodesy. There are many issues that need to be resolved before such an ambitious goal is met. Some of them are administrative, procedural and policy related. Others have an applied research component.
This is a ONE YEAR appointment to undertake a series of tasks. The research assistant will be work closely with partners in the Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information, including several state government lands/spatial agencies, Geoscience Australia, and Land Information New Zealand.
