Australian Radio Astronomy Data User Survey Report Released
The AusSRC Design Study Program recently undertook a survey of the radio astronomy data user community in Australia for the purposes of obtaining feedback that would inform the development of the AusSRC. The results based on seventy-four responses, as well as conclusions and future actions obtained from the survey are detailed in the report.
