Currently, to understand different global phenomena and situations, more and more recourse is made to the various data that is collected through Earth observation. Those data, which come from different sources, such as satellite information or sensors on Earth, are subsequently interpreted through complex models.

The Data Observatory is working together with CSIRO (Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization) to develop a Chilean and eventually South American Data Cube. The Data Cube is an organization system, calibration, correction of satellite data, monitoring and sensing systems, which delivers all the data in such a way that a researcher, public official or entrepreneur can concentrate on asking interesting questions and arrive quickly. to the answers you need.

This infrastructure that is being developed by CSIRO and the DO tries to promote research in base areas, applied research, for example on the subject of climate change, and in the area of ​​innovation towards the development of technology and services in various areas of the economy.
