Melbourne Planning Summit: AURIN Workbench Masterclass

AURIN will be presenting a free AURIN Workbench Masterclass as part of the post-conference program for delegates at the Melbourne Planning Summit

At an AURIN Masterclass you will learn how to use the AURIN Workbench. On the workbench, you can are able to get instant access to thousands of datasets that are quick to retrieve and easy to explore. Analyse and interrogate the spatially enabled data from across disciplines in one easy to use – and completely free – online GIS.

The AURIN Workbench streamlines access to health, transport, housing, income, land use, demographic, geographic and much more data, all spatially enabled and integrated to work together.

What will we learn?

During an AURIN Masterclass you will learn how to access and explore data and assess its suitability for your research. We will learn how to use the AURIN Workbench tools (Map, Portal, API) that will help you analyse your data and create intelligent maps to mold your information into shareable knowledge that supports your decision making. The AURIN Masterclass is hands-on and collaborative, with staff on hand to make sure you gain the full value from the AURIN Workbench.


Who should take part?

This masterclass is open to all planners and practitioners who wish to learn more about AURIN and the potential to incorporate a spatial decision support aspect to their research and policy making.

No prior experience of GIS or data is required.  Researchers from any discipline considering a spatial (mapping) element to their research and decision making will benefit from taking part.
