Economic value of Earth observation from Space

A study for Geoscience Australia to determine the economic value of space based Earth observation activities to Australia in the 2008-09 financial year was conducted through the CRCSI.

This study informs development of a National Space Policy for Australia. The Project aimed to obtain an estimate of the economic value of space-based earth observation which goes beyond traditional "footprint" measures and extends into the true economic impact, including a measure of indirect economic impacts.
