RESEARCH PUBLICATIONS POWERED BY AURIN

AURIN supports the Australian research community with a world-leading e-Infrastructure and network that allows access to data and analysis tools to assist researchers in gathering the evidence base for decisions to improve our urban and regional towns, cities and communities.

Our Workbench has been used to by thousands of researchers from academia, government and industry.  Below is a collection of academic journal articles, national, state and local government reports, conference papers and book chapters that have cited AURIN.

COVID-19 – Using spatial analysis to identify service gaps and inform delivery for vulnerable communities

Researcher Ali Lakhani, from La Trobe University in Victoria accessed data from AURIN partners Healthdirect, ABS and the Hugo Centre for Migration and Population Research via the AURIN Portal to conduct spatial analysis to identify service priority areas of ageing adults with disability & low access to health services, those deemed at higher risk for COVID-19.

#AURINimpact

This research supports the evidence base needed for efficient planning and effective distribution of services that meets the needs of the population.  Metro-Melbourne has been used as an example but the methodology can be applied to any regional or urban area.

Open-system Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) & Property Values

Researchers from University of Queensland have accessed free commercial housing data from AURIN partners Corelogic via the AURIN Portal to investigate the spatial variation in the association between the BRT system and property values.

#AURINimpact

This research supports the evidence base needed for more transit oriented development and investment in sustainable transport.

Water and Energy Supply and Consumption Data

Given increasing pressures from population growth and land use change, Australian researchers require access to high value water and energy (WE) supply and consumption data for planning and decision-making purposes.

#AURINimpact

AURIN partnered with CSIRO to develop a protocol for improving access and use of WE data that led to the creation of the WE Supply and Consumption (WESC) model
