Given increasing pressures from population growth and land use change, Australian researchers from academia and government require access to high value water and energy (WE) supply and consumption data for planning and decision-making purposes.
Recent federal government initiatives like the EUDM and NEAR programs have sought to unlock this data and make it available via an extended WE Supply and Consumption (WESC) data standard, which was originally designed between AURIN-CSIRO. Previous work was also carried out to engage the water and energy sector in establishing a WESC data hub at AURIN, however, further work is required for its wide-scale use within research communities.
For this purpose, the WESC Data Forum aims to bring together data users and service providers (data providers and advocates), to develop new pathways for increasing data availability and use of WESC data to enable data-driven planning and decision-making. Proposed forum topics include:
- The WESC data model as an integration enabler incl. examples from data users and data services
- Opportunities and challenges in the water and energy data community
- Explore development pathways for future WESC data efforts to meet community requirements
- The FAIR Data principles and how they might be adopted in an updated AURIN-CSIRO WESC hub
A limited number of grants are available to subsidise travel to the forum at The University of Melbourne (max. payable $500). Please complete and email this application form to email@example.com.

First meeting of the Geospatial Capabilities Community of Practice, co-chaired by Michael Rigby (AURIN) and Kheeran Dharmawardena (Cytrax Consulting). The intent of
The intent of the Geospatial Capabilities Community of Practice is to bring people together as a community who, in some capacity, work with geospatial data and make it available for broader use. The group is intended as a forum for sharing knowledge and experiences with finding, accessing, transforming, using and making available geospatial data.
