Welcome to the Main Auscope collaboration web

AuScope Limited is a non-profit company formed to facilitate the implementation of a world-class infrastructure system for earth science through the delivery of a range of technologies and capabilities in data acquisition, management, modelling and simulation across the geospatial and geoscience spectrum.

AuScope has been awarded $42.8 million by the Australian Government under the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) as Capability 5.13, “Structure and Evolution of the Australian Continent”, which brings together 23 participants including CSIRO, Geoscience Australia, 11 universities, and state government agencies. In addition to its NCRIS funding, over $70 million in co-investment has been committed by the participants in AuScope.

AuScope is built on the principle that simply acquiring the infrastructure and making it accessible to meritorious researchers is only part of the solution. The paradigm shift will come from harnessing, organising and providing ready access to the data, information and knowledge that result from use of the infrastructure. In turn, making the new data, information and knowledge available outside the research community will result in new and improved science, business, educational and policy applications.

Six components were identified that covered the main science and infrastructure delivery needs.

This website is the Auscope collaboration area and is used to organise some aspects of the work in progress across the Auscope community. Each of the links above takes you to a work area for that component though not all components use the facility.

If you are looking for an overview of Auscope and its components then visit the Auscope web site for a more polished description.
