Flying helicopters on Mars is impressive – a database of drone data is essential
The Australian Research Data Commons has a three-year research project to create a “nationally accessible ecosystem for drone-related research and innovation.”
“We must transform already substantial drone data processing capabilities towards best-practice, automation and intelligent decision making.”
It’s what the ARDC does – last month it announced a project to create a national data management system so that institutions need not create their own stand-alone systems. (CMM March 26).
Uniform drone data management is not a ten on the NASA scale of tech whizbangery but it helps if everybody can find all of it.
