AURIN APIs

AURIN has developed an Application Programming Interface (API) to allow users to access a whole range of open datasets, without having to log in to the portal. Users can access these datasets via desktop GIS programs such as QGIS, mobile apps, and other programming or technical environments and platforms (such as R, Jupyter)

The AURIN APIs contain data contributed to AURIN as part of activities to enhance research outcomes and knowledge about cities, regions and urban infrastructure. AURIN is funded by the Commonwealth government NCRIS program.
