EVO is just one of a number of international initiatives seeking to use the latest cloud technologies to improve the outcomes from environmental research.
EVO is working with a variety of international partners to develop consistent standards for exchanging environmental data and information across the cloud. We are sharing best practice in the development of cloud-enabled environmental monitoring and catchment modelling technologies to provide improved web-based access to catchment information and predictions, and we are producing a road-map for future cloud-enabled environmental science.
