This event has already taken place.

Thursday 4 October 2018

Researchers you can model and test ideas through access to thousands of datasets and over 100 analytical and visualisation tools within the Australian Urban Research Infrastructure Network (AURIN) portal.

Access over 4000 datasets from government, academia and industry, and visualise data for research or teaching, by logging in to the AURIN portal with your VU login details.

Within the portal, VU staff and students can securely access, analyse and visualise data by:

  • selecting the geographical area of enquiry
  • selecting data from across disciplines (demography, property and housing, transport, health, energy and water)
  • importing their own data, drawing geometry datasets and viewing data
  • visualising data with interactive charts and map visualisations
  • analysing data using various tools (charts, spatial data manipulation, spatial statistics, migration analysis, walkability, etc.)
