The Australian Urban Research Infrastructure Network (AURIN) is a national resource for urban researchers, decision and policy makers. AURIN provides access to over 1,100 datasets from over 40 data custodians and provides a layer of over 100 advanced geospatial analysis tools, all within an online, cloud-based environment.
In this workshop, participants will gain hands-on experience with the AURIN workbench. This workshop represents a great opportunity to fast-track your access to Australian urban data and familiarise yourself with powerful open-source tools and analytical capabilities in a guided environment, lead by geospatial experts Dr Jack Barton and Xavier Goldie.
This workshop will be of interest to all researchers and professionals working in the built environment. Anyone with an .edu.au email address, or upon application, any member of the .gov.au community can securely access this extensive evidence-base covering every aspect of the urban environment: demographics, econometrics, housing, health and well-being, energy and water usage and innovative urban design.
Participants are asked to bring their own laptop computer with wireless capability and a charger.
