AURIN provides a suite of data, analytical, and decision-support tools to policy-makers, researchers and industry. This allows evidence-based decision-making and leading edge research around Australia’s towns and cities to thrive.
Together, these tools are known as the AURIN Workbench.
The AURIN Portal contains a rich range of data and analytical tools.
Thousands of datasets from hundreds of data providers can be retrieved through the AURIN Portal, and over 100 analytical and visualisation tools provide extensive scope for spatialising, integrating, manipulating and mapping diverse data from across multiple research disciplines.
The AURIN Portal is accessible to everyone with an Australian Access Federation (AAF) login, which means everyone with a .edu.au account and staff from other public research institutions such as the CSIRO. Log in with your University credentials here.
If you have a .gov.au email address request a free account here.
Find out more information about the Portal at our Portal Information Page.
AURIN has developed an Application Programming Interface (API) to allow users to access a whole range of open datasets, without having to log in to the portal. Users can access these datasets via desktop GIS programs such as QGIS, mobile apps, and other programming or technical environments and platforms (such as R, Jupyter).
The AURIN API contains data contributed to AURIN as part of activities to enhance research outcomes and knowledge about cities, regions and urban infrastructure. AURIN is funded by the Commonwealth government NCRIS program.
AURIN supports open data. Datasets available through the OpenAPI are licensed under Creative Commons licences.
