Many challenges facing urban and built environment researchers stem from the complexity and diversity of the urban data landscape.
This landscape is typified by multiple independent organizations each holding a variety of heterogeneous data sets of relevance to the urban community. Furthermore, urban research...
The Australian Urban Research Infrastructure Network (AURIN) ( www.aurin.org.au ) is a $20 million project funded under the Australian Government’s Super Science initiative. Its objective is to develop and implement an e-Infrastructure providing researchers access to comprehensive sets of diverse data from multiple sources with...
Analysing spatial variations in regional economic performance is a common focus for research by regional scientists. Typically such investigations suffer from using de jure regions (such as Local Government Aras) as the spatial base as data tend to be readily available for such administrative areas...
This article discusses the evolution of Regional Science, the critiques it has received and the challenges it has confronted.
A review of the Australian Urban Intelligence Network (AURIN) project: the network of researchers, planners and policy-makers involved, the online workbench of data and tools, and the urban data and analytical capability it offers.
For some time Australia has been exhibiting the hallmarks of a "two speed economy" in which the sun-belt states are surging ahead fed by internal migration and the resources boom. But the nation has always been one in which marked regional differences economic performance have...

First, the book provides the reader with an overview of key theoretical and conceptual contexts within which the...
A new geography of functional economic regions (FERs) has been created for Australia using a methodology that optimizes within-region self-containment of commuting to jobs. The paper tests whether this FER geography might overcome the spatial autocorrelation problem encountered when using de jure regions such as...
