CC11 - Business Case for Identifying and Predicting Climate Change Impacts using satellite Earth Observation images, big data sets, and machine learning

Project start and end dates:
2019-08-03 to 2019-10-19

Goals & Objectives

Help research and document a business opportunity for a new climate change impact software product.

The analysis will be used as justification to commit further corporate resources and focus, and serve as backgrounder for investments and fundraising.

We are looking for business case assistance with

  • Market analysis
  • Customer analysis
  • (if time allows) Very high level revenue streams/risks analysis

We are looking for a well researched, fair, and factual business case whatever the conclusions are.

Project Outcome

The RMIT students provided market and customer research to help build a business case for a climate change application we are planning.

They demonstrated enthusiasm, good research and writing skills, creativity and insight throughout the project.  They were always pleasant, professional, keen to understand our project goals and objectives, and willing to go the extra mile to help achieve them.

We were very happy with their assistance and we will put their deliverable to use in our business case, product planning, and marketing efforts.


We would like to thank the students and teaching staff of BUSM4370 – Accounting Business Design 2  course. *

OASIS: Software Solutions for Climate Change Problems

Software can help the world respond to climate change impacts and disasters.

In 2019 we set out to investigate if there is a need for a solution that gives citizens personalized help preparing for and recovering from climate change impacts and lets trusted authorities assist them and report on their results.

As part of this effort, a great deal of market and technical research was conducted over the last few years. Over 140 students have been involved so far, in dozens of academic institutions in Canada and internationally.

Our greatest finding is the willingness of citizens to take responsibility and help themselves, their neighbors and community plan for, mitigate and recover from climate change impacts and disasters. We also confirmed that a software solution can be built to help overcome the barriers they face when trying to do so.

Now we’re working on a prototype and sharing our findings and progress. Find out more on our OASIS project website!

A Riipen Project

Riipen is your online platform for virtual project-based learning

Get hands-on support from our students through an in-class project or virtual internship.

  • In-class projects allow you to connect with one of our educators to embed your project into the students’ curriculum. Become the real-life case study for students in the classroom!
  • Virtual internships are similar to in-person internships, except they are project-based with a clear outcome and the engagement is primarily done online.
