A presentation conducted by Mr Phillip Delaney, The University of Melbourne.
Presented on Tuesday the 1st of October 2013.

Discovering and accessing relevant data is a problem often faced by urban researchers, policy and decision-makers
across Australia. Several public, private and academic entities are establishing Data Hubs; online catalogues for data discovery, access and interrogation. Data Hubs are
typically web services accessible via a portal, often with narrow geographic or application focus, with varied levels of analytical and visualisation capability. The Australian Urban
Research Infrastructure Network (AURIN) is focused on providing better access to comprehensive datasets through a dedicated e-Infrastructure platform. The AURIN portal
will facilitate programmatic access to data held in many emerging Data Hubs across Australia. AURIN is implementing a federated data model, providing a single access point and common interface for interrogating datasets. This paper outlines the Data Hub concept, describing the process and benefits of Data Hub integration within the AURIN e-infrastructure context

SMART International Symposium for Next Generation Infrastructure: Realising the Data Hub Concept for Urban Australia

  1. 1. ENDORSING PARTNERS Realising the Data Hub Concept for Urban Australia The following are confirmed contributors to the business and policy dialogue in Sydney: • Rick Sawers (National Australia Bank) • Nick Greiner (Chairman (Infrastructure NSW) Monday, 30th September 2013: Business & policy Dialogue Tuesday 1 October to Thursday, 3rd October: Academic and Policy Dialogue Presented by: Mr Phillip Delaney, The University of Melbourne www.isngi.org www.isngi.org

  3. 3. Outline • • • • • • Introduction Data Hub Concept Emergence of Data Hubs Data Hubs in Australia Case Study Next Steps
  4. 4. Introduction • Smart Cities – Big Data used to make decisions/predictions about cities • Growing need for data access in urban research and urban planning decisions • Data hard to find/use • Australian Urban Research Infrastructure Network (AURIN) established to address these issues
  5. 5. AURIN Approach • Facilitate merited based access to distributed data • Tools to find, interrogate, analyze and visualize data and support good research methodologies • Enable researchers to share results, interact and collaborate • Allow data providers to keep control of the data and their use • Establishing Data Hubs across Australia to enable simple data access and distribution
  6. 6. Data Hub Concept Data User Data Owner Data User Data Owner DATA HUB Data User Data User Data Owner/ User
  7. 7. Data Hub Concept Allows users to search for a variety of data Allows users to access and use this data Provides data in a discrete set of formats Allows users/data custodians to contribute data to the hub • Allows for programmatic access to data; and • Provides information about the data (Metadata) • • • •
  8. 8. Emergence of Data Hubs • Development of data warehouse/datamart/geoportal technology • Geoportals created a new entry point for online access to geographic content • Data Hubs include these, but focus on collaboration – User community can help shape inputs – Allows for shared research – Focus on opening up data access
  9. 9. Emergence of Data Hubs Evolution of the Data Hubs (modified from Yang et al., 2010)
  10. 10. Data Hubs – Global Context • Applied to many fields, incl. Urban Research – INSPIRE – Urban Audit http://www.urbanaudit.org/ – Buildings Performance Institute Europe http://www.bpie.eu/
  11. 11. Data Hubs – Global Context • Applied to many fields, incl. Urban Research – Data.gov movement – global applications based on OKF CKAN platform http://ckan.org/ – Open Knowledge Foundation (OKF) Data Hub http://www.datahub.io/
  12. 12. Data Hubs – Australia
  13. 13. Emergence of Data Hubs • AURIN Objective: Improve collection and integration of urban research datasets • AURIN Data Hubs facilitate direct data access, through AURIN portal to key datasets – National Government – State Government – Local Government – Research Institutions – Private Industry
  14. 14. AURIN Data Hubs
  15. 15. Establishing Data Hub • Every data hub is different, but aligns to consistent metadata standard • Solution depends on existing infrastructure – Storage – Transmission/service standard – Integration • Facilitates licensing arrangements • Establish stakeholder/user community to ensure data meets needs
  16. 16. Data Hub Benefits • Data Custodians retain responsibility for maintaining/updating data • Allows consolidated/simplified access to complex urban datasets • Users accessing up to date data • Consistent metadata standards across all data types • Single point of licensing data for research
  17. 17. Melbourne Data Hub • Signed off by 7 Secretaries across Victorian Government • Unlocked over 120 dataset to urban researchers via the AURIN portal • Data ingested from 12 separate data custodians
  18. 18. Melbourne Data Hub • • • • User/stakeholder groups identified relevant urban data Data Hub established using GeoServer at UoM Custodians contribute data to single distribution location AURIN only one user of many – integrated into research tools: – – – – Walkability Employment Housing Health
  19. 19. Conclusion • Data Hubs increase ease of data discovery and use • Multiple Data Hubs successfully integrated in the AURIN platform • AURIN Data Hubs can be used in external urban research applications • AURIN is implementing the Data Hubs concept to support urban research in Australia
  20. 20. Next Steps • Continue discussions with data custodians to determine future possible data hubs • Further investigate data.gov.au sites for their potential as data hubs • Investigate consuming live data feeds form Data Hubs • Develop common framework for establishing new Data Hub • Examine opportunities to expand/scale-up existing data hubs to support new users/applications beyond the current AURIN project
