Extend the Census of Land Use and Employment database to a cloud based in-browser operating system enabling five inner-city Melbourne councils to collect, store, analyse and publish economic data. The project will also offer the technology system and method to all Australian councils.
The problem to solve with this project is the lack of consistent and comprehensive and accessible business, employment and land use data across jurisdictions in Australia.
The project aims to help local governments and communities use smart technology and increase the accessibility and use of public data so that:
1. cities, suburbs and towns become more liveable, productive and sustainable and
2. urban service delivery becomes more efficient and effective.
The CLUE system and the accompanying method will be scalable and will be offered to all Australian councils.
