Ground Truth is inspired by the science of remote sensing: using data from satellites, airborne sensors and ground-based platforms to map and monitor vast landscapes and how they change over time.
The Ground Truth Network is where art meets science.
Using new media, documentary and interactive art, Ground Truth creates a catalyst for discussion about how humans and nature are changing the environment we live in and the role of spatial sciences in tracking the change.

The Ground Truth immersive media exhibitions bring to life satellite imagery of the Greater Brisbane Region, the Channel Country and Cape York to show us how humans and nature are changing the environment we live in.
Step forwards and backwards through time and sound for an interactive journey through some of Queensland’s most cyclical and rapidly changing landscapes.
In a unique collaboration, media artist Grania Kelly has teamed with Queensland Government remote-sensing scientists and visualisation experts at QUT Institute for Future Environments to bring this mapping to life.
