North-West Melbourne

The purpose of this project is to facilitate access to data sets for the Melbourne North West corridor and in turn provide researchers, planners, practitioners and policy makers with access to the data via the AURIN portal.  More information about the project can be found at the project blog.

The project has given rise to demonstrator projects in three major areas – click on these to find out more:

 

 

 

 

 

Health

The aim of this project is to improve access to an integrated set of health-related (prevalence and service use) and social and physical infrastructure data to aid policy makers and planners.

This Demonstrator Project is based on collaborative work previously undertaken by The Department of General Practice at the University of Melbourne and the Department of Health North West Metropolitan Region (NWMR).

More information about the project can be found at the project blog.

The demonstrator online application can be found here.

Housing

The focus of this project is to demonstrate the link between availability of developable land and space and affordable housing development. This requires a rigorous analysis of residential land development potential that is essentially linked to datasets such as land value and capital improved value information (Agunbiade et al 2011).

More information about the project can be found at the project blog.

Walkability

This project aims to test this hypothesis by utilising new methods for measuring walkability whilst bringing together separate data bases from Department of Sustainability and Environment such as road network, residential density, rail networks, and aerial imagery with information from Transnet including public transport frequency and stop locations, with traffic volume information provided by VicRoads.
