One of the aims of the CSIRO Earth Observation Centre is to demonstrate best practice in the application of space-based remotely sensed data over the terrestrial surface. This involves a considerable investment in calibration and validation of those data by making appropriate on-ground or low-altitude airborne measurements. The following instruments are available to CSIRO research staff for these purposes.
