Award for Workforce Development & Inclusion
NGIS and Winyama for our involvement as technology enablement partners for the Indigenous Mapping Workshop Australia (IMW Australia) - On Demand. The online learning offering from IMW Australia consists of primarily First Nations learners and allies working in the land management space with 500 learners from every state and territory in Australia and over 54% women participants. The IMW Australia was foremostly an in-person training event for Indigenous people around the country to come together and learn from professionals the skills they needed to begin or continue with programs related to taking care of Country and community. With the COVID-19 pandemic came the need for an alternative solution, then the fully online, access anytime, IMW Australia - On Demand courses were born.
The course streams include:
All of the streams are targeted towards key areas and skills required to be successful in land management and mapping software.
Award for International Partnership
Our ongoing involvement with the Group on Earth Observations Google Earth Engine (GEO GEE) Programme, launched in 2020. The Programme was able to provide $3 million USD in product licenses and $1 million USD in technical support. The team at EO Data Science contributed technical support to the 32 projects, based in 22 countries worldwide, including 38 Google Earth Engine training courses, assisting 680 program participants. All projects chosen to receive funding were considered for their commitment to help tackle the world's greatest challenges in climate change and disaster monitoring.
