Melbourne, Australia: Ambient Maps, a leader in noise modelling geospatial data and analytics, and AURIN, the Australian Urban Research Infrastructure Network, have announced a partnership to deliver advanced geospatial intelligence to urban planners and researchers. The partnership will leverage Ambient Maps’ expertise in noise modelling, data acquisition and processing and AURIN’s extensive data resource management […]
A digital twin is a virtual model designed to accurately represent a real world process or system. Urban digital twins provide a representation of our built environment, including infrastructure services and social dimensions, for data analytics and simulations that can be updated as their equivalents change. Digital twins can be used to test scenarios and […]
Using APM (Australian Property Monitors) Point Level Data and the Inside Airbnb dataset available through AURIN, researchers at the University of Auckland have assessed the impact of short-term tourism rentals, in particular, those through Airbnb, on rental prices across different suburbs in Melbourne, Australia. Cheung & Yiu’s (2022) study ‘Touristification, Airbnb and the tourism-led rent […]
As extreme weather events increase it’s vitally important to identify populations who are vulnerable to extreme heat, particularly those living in urban areas. Many urban areas have higher temperatures than rural areas, a direct result of urbanisation, which is referred to as an ‘urban heat island’. This is even more crucial in Australian context, which […]
Map of Melbourne showing the VAMPIRE score (the Vulnerability Analysis for Mortgage, Petroleum and Inflation Risks and Expenditure), available via the AURIN Map portal. The rising cost of living is causing economic pain across Australia. The soaring price of petrol is impacting not just our commutes but also the costs of goods and services. This […]
AURIN has funded new critical eInfrastructure for open space research, generating new, nationally consistent, data and improving existing analysis and visualisation tools. This will enable Australia’s research community to address complex urban and regional planning issues in Australia and find solutions that create positive impacts for our towns, cities and communities. Public open spaces are […]
Maps of Sydney according to various descriptors | Image supplied. With data made available through AURIN, researchers at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) are working to incorporate more detailed features of the built environment into existing climate models. This will provide a basis for a better understanding of how urban areas both impact […]
The Victorian Government recently announced a rental relief package to support tenants who are “experiencing rental hardship due to COVID-19” (Department of Health and Human Services, 2020). Eligible renters who are unable to afford rent, can access a one-off payment of up to $2000, with the aim of avoiding evictions during the current state of emergency. […]
