Thursday, March 6, 2014
9:00 PM – 10:00 PM GMT
The ICA-OSGeo Lab Network and MundoGEO are now pleased to inform the fifth webinar of the ”Open Geospatial Science & Applications” webinar series on March 6th. The webinar will be open and free to all on first come register basis.
This webinar will be on AURIN, the Australian Urban Research Infrastructure Network, by: Chris Pettit, Strategic Implementation Coordinator (University of Melbourne, Australia); and Dr. Jack Barton, Urban Data and e-Research Facilitator.
AURIN is building a geospatial open source online platform to support the urban research and policy and decision-making community in Australia. AURIN is a nationally funded project through the Department of Education¹s Super Science initiative. An open source geoportal has been built (currently in Beta 3) which provides secure access to a large array of datasets from across Australia using a federated data architecture. The portal also provides a suite of spatial-statistics, workflow and visualization tools to support urban researchers, policy and decision-making in planning for sustainable cities.
This webinar will introduce the AURIN project, discuss the various e-infrastructure components of the portal and federated data hubs and will give a demonstration of its capability.
Attendees will be able to interact with the speakers by sending their comments and questions through chat. All attendees of this web seminar will receive certificates for their participation.
