aurin data request form

AURIN is the largest single resource for accessing and interrogating thousands of datasets spanning the physical, social, economic and ecological aspects of Australian cities, town’s and cities.

As a central component of that role, we place a strong focus on ensuring that Australia’s research and policy making communities have continued and growing access to the right datasets to underpin high quality research and evidence-based decision-making. This involves working with researchers to identify existing datasets that may not be licensed in a way that allows their free and accessible use for research and policy, and advocating for their release through AURIN’s robust and secure infrastructure.

We are always willing to collaborate and advocate for the opening up of data for our user base. If you know of a dataset that would be useful to your and other researchers’ work, please fill in the form below. Alternatively, you can contact AURIN’s data team here

What variables does it contain? What spatial coverage does it have - all of Australia, or just part? Which part? Is it aggregated to a standard level of geography, or is a point/line/polygon dataset?
Is it Creative Commons/Open? Or is it closed/commercially sensitive?
