The Centre for eResearch and Digital Innovation (CeRDI) at Federation University Australia (FedUni) is a global leader in data interoperability and has developed many award-winning web-based spatial information and knowledge portals which provide public access to data sets that are often hidden from view.
Data provision and spatial information portals including Online Farm Trials, Ballarat Historical Urban Landscapes, Visualising Victoria’s Groundwater, Corangamite Soil Knowledgebase and Sport and Recreation Spatial, have been established in partnership with a range of research investors and collaborators and can be accessed at: http://spatial.federation.edu.au.
As an outcome, environmental, landscape, industry and planning data are more discoverable and accessible to support practical and applied solutions in areas including productive agriculture, municipal planning, natural resource and environmental management and fire and emergency services preparedness, response and recovery.
CeRDI also conducts longitudinal impact research to understand how eResearch and digital innovation including these interoperable spatial data portals can achieve sustained practice change and build empowerment and ownership across groups, communities and industries.
