Planning for Climate Change: An Evidence-Based Approach

For generations, Australians have witnessed and endured the harsh realities of our landscape. From unrelenting droughts to catastrophic bushfires, the country is no stranger to extreme weather.
However, with the frequency and severity of these extreme weather events predicted to increase in the near future, it’s important now more than ever to address key questions of how we can better prepare for them and how can we learn from these events to mitigate consequences into the future.

Python Whitebox Tools Demo

When talking about 3D data we often think about high end fancy visualizations that give that wow factor where you can barely tell the difference between what is real and what is digital.

And then COVID happened.
