In an era of big data, little data and smart cities, significant repositories of data are becoming available for planners, decision-makers, and communities. The opportunity exists to utilize this data to support evidenced based decision making and collectively plan for the future of our cities. The Program is focused on developing and applying innovative techniques for collecting, analysing and visualizing urban data. The program has strong linkages with the Commonwealth government-funded national Australian Urban Research Infrastructure Network (AURIN) project and the Urban Big Data Centres, University of Glasgow.
City Analytics research is closely linked to a number of courses within UNSW Built Environment at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. The following courses are taught by City Analytics staff who leverage considerable research experience into delivering to students the most up to date knowledge relevant to today’s changing urban landscape.
