About Digitally Enabled Infrastructures

Digitally enabled infrastructures targets how best to integrate interactive technologies with public services to enhance residents’ lives. Masters students from RMIT focus their research on Victoria Harbour and prototype technology driven design proposals for public environments within the precinct.

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.


The Exchange continued its free public lecture series with A Smart City Approach for Melbourne with Bonnie Shaw and Jordi McInerney from City of Melbourne’s Smart City Office. Bonnie and Jordi spoke about how the City of Melbourne’s Smart City Approach connects people, place and technology for the benefit of all.

More events as part of Digitally Enabled Infrastructures to come.

Activities

  • Datascapes: Short Film Night

    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.
