The easiest way to access ecosystems data & analytical tools for research
Below you can select whether you want to launch an RStudio or Jupyter Notebook instance, or a Virtual Desktop instance (Coesra). Once logged in you can connect your Dropbox or local files and link with our curated set of ecoscience data.
Note: This is a prototype. We encourage your feedback on your experience here.Launch RStudio or JupyterLaunch Virtual Desktop
Opening the door to a whole new array of researchers who understand the systems they are working on, but do not have the technical skill-sets or hardware to properly answer their questions.
About the project
Six of Australia’s national research infrastructure investments have come together to create a new, exciting e-research platform to support Australian research: The Australian Science Clouds. The EcoCloud is one of these platforms and will provide the ecosystem science community with improved access to analysis tools, platforms and computing resources, via a single interface that links multiple data nodes and data service providers.
The Ecocloud project is a collaborative effort supported by NeCTAR as the major project sponsor, TERN and ALA as the NCRIS domain partners, QCIF as the implementation partner, and NCI as a key collaborator.
