“30 years of data in 30 seconds” – NRM Spatial Hub on the ABC

The NRM Spatial Hub (the Hub) was interviewed by Robin McConchie from the ABC Country Hour in Queensland this week.

It was a great opportunity for Business Development Manager with the Hub Phil Tickle to articulate the current status of the project and where it is heading.

Here is part of the interview…..

The NRM Spatial Hub is moving out of initial research and into commercial development thanks to a deal with Meat and Livestock Australia and Australian Wool Innovation.

Manager Phil Tickle, who is with the Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information, said the Hub was a new mapping and monitoring technology for pastoralists and graziers across the country.

“It offers simple internet access to a range of new mapping tools and the ability to monitor ground cover on your property over the last 30 years,” he said.

“The user has now got the ability to look at 30 years of data in 30 seconds.

“What we are doing is providing an easy-to-use cloud-based platform; it is about you creating data for yourself, in a secure and safe environment and then deciding who you want to share it with.

“It’s about bringing government data [satellite mapping data] to you, rather than you putting your data into government systems, which means that you have control over that data.”
