The Australian Geoscience Data Cube provides an integrated gridded data analysis environment for decades of analysis ready earth observation satellite and related data from multiple satellite and other acquisition systems.
In 2014, Geoscience Australia, CSIRO and the NCI established the Australian Geoscience Data Cube, building on earlier work of Geoscience Australia and expanding it to include additional earth observation satellite and other gridded data collections (e.g. MODIS, DEM) in order to expand the range of integrated data analysis capabilities that were available.
Version 1 of the AGDC, maintained by Geoscience Australia (see github.com/GeoscienceAustralia), utilises the full Australian Landsat archive for operational and some exploratory analyses and is deployed at the NCI petascale computing facility for use by NCI users. Version 2 of the AGDC builds on the concepts introduced in the original AGDC and extends these with a modular software design and the flexibility to deploy to multiple computing environments.

The current implementation of AGDC v2 concepts is intended as a working prototype for a cohesive, sustainable framework for large-scale multidimensional data management for geoscientific data. This public development release is intended to foster broader collaboration on the design and implementation. It is not intended for operational use.More Info
The operational version of the original AGDC code is available from github.com/GeoscienceAustralia.
