AURIN provides urban researchers, policy and decision-makers with an infrastructure to facilitate web-based access to a wealth of information on urban environments across Australia. AURIN provides live links to some 1,500 datasets and over 100 analytical tools by which urban information can be accessed, interrogated, modelled and simulated. Participants in the AURIN workshop will explore the extensive data repositories and extract information about Australian cities. Using the sophisticated tools contained within the AURIN portal, participants can mould this information into visible and sharable knowledge. Until now, much of this information has remained behind closed doors. AURIN enables access to this data for built environment professionals across all fields, letting users discover and mash-up data, information and knowledge. Participants can undertake comparative analyses to study health data, analyse revealing socio-economic information, investigate walkability of neighbourhoods and more. Familiarity with these metrics is essential to understanding patterns of urban development and to best inform smart urban growth for a sustainable future. This workshop will be of interest to students, urban researchers, members of government and industry.
