“The Open Data Cube Masterclass”
2019-08-29, 11:00–12:30, Room 5

The Open Data Cube (ODC) is a collaborative effort to develop software and a community of users around a common goal of increasing the ease of access to earth observation data. The increase in the number of Earth observing satellites over the past 12 months, coupled with new open data policies as well as new storage formats, like Cloud Optimised GeoTIFF, means that there is a need for a standard way to ‘plug in’ to this data and enable analysis processes. The ODC provides this way.

This workshop will introduce you to a reference implementation of the ODC, the ODC Sandbox, and through the use of the Sandbox, you'll work through a suite of examples that show you what the ODC can do.

You'll learn about the following applications using the ODC in this workshop: * What is Jupyter and How can I use it * Using simple Jupyter Apps to explore data * Do it yourself example using NDVI * Advanced example using Landsat 8 optical data to identify coastlines * Advanced example using Sentinel 1 radar data to identify water.

This workshop will be hands on, so a familiarity with Python or a similar programming language is required.
