  • Datascapes: Short Film Night

    12 Oct 2017 5.30pm - 7.30pm

    Access to data is essential for generating urban plans for rapidly developing cities and precincts such as Victoria Harbour, however it is often challenging to acquire.

    This is because the data either does not exist or is tightly controlled by the public / private sector. However, data does exist—we just need the right methods to capture it.

    The Digital Futures team at Aurecon ran the Datascapes seminar, assisting students to map Victoria Harbour to better understand climate conditions within the precinct. In their final short films, students exhibited unique approaches in the collection, analysis and visualisation of micro-climate data.
