COALA enabling Platform and DIAS integration

Develop the COALA processing environment using Copernicus Data and Information Access Services with the aim of facilitating the access to Copernicus data and information for Australian users. Addressing new or improved processes or services stemming from the use of Earth observation and their smart integration at the level of the user with other related technologies

GRDC-pulse-landscape-1

Pilot deployment, calibration and demonstration of services

To openly validate and demonstrate the commercial value of COALA services to a wider user/client community; to achieve a high level of acceptance from users of innovative EO based product and their integration with other non-EO data;
to calibrate services and products in an open environment

Our Mission is Big

This is custom heading element

New DIAS

Deploy on Data and Information Access Service (DIAS) environment that provide a continuous flow of EO-assisted information in the pilot use cases.

EO-assisted Services

Pre-operational services established that provide a continuous flow of EO-assisted services for different users

New Brand

Create the new product identity, build the brand, design the strategy and develop the marketing and policy activities that will introduce COALA solutions to its targeted customers

Pilot

Pilot subtitle

Goulburn Murray Water Region, Griffith, Coleambally Demonstration at Farm scale
The test case aims to test the applicability of the information provided for on-farm management. In this context Rubicon will provide data and support field activities for validation in selected farms and to provide feedback on the pilot solution tool

Wimmera & Mallee Region Farm scale demonstrations with selected Birchip Cropping Group (BCG) members
The test case aims to work with existing irrigation growers that are BCG members. BCG would look to collect intensive data from the farmers involved in irrigation of the field and the required nutrition to match irrigation based on existing tools such as yield prophet.
Northern MDB Demonstration at District scale
The northern Murray–Darling Basin has a number of water systems with active markets. The region primarily comprises a range of inland systems along tributaries of the Darling River. For this report the Lachlan River, an intermittent tributary of the Murrumbidgee, has also been included.
