What if everything that happened in the environment was immediately recorded and made available to everyone in real time?
This is the idea behind a bold 10-year research programme run by Australia’s government research agency CSIRO to build a complete digital representation of the country.
Oznome – named to echo the Human Genome Project – aims to become a “historical, current and future digital representation of everything” in the country by 2025, starting with environmental data.
“Like the Human Genome Project, Oznome is a big crazy idea that many people will say isn’t possible,” says David Lemon, a research team leader at CSIRO.
