Launch of the SMART Infrastructure Dashboard

The ANDS-funded SMART Infrastructure Dashboard under development at the University of Wollongong’s SMART Infrastructure Facility was officially launched on 9 November 2012, at the “Culture of Innovation” Symposium, part of the new Illawarra Futures Symposium Series, which was held on 8-9 November 2012 at the University of Wollongong’s Innovation Campus.

The SMART Infrastructure Dashboard provides visual, graphical and geospatial data analysis capabilities using publicly available infrastructure utility data. This information, crossed with relevant regional, state and national-level figures from demographics and economics, constitutes a robust foundation for powerful infrastructure analytics. The dashboard acts as a customer centric portal providing easy, transparent and intuitive access to primary data and information creating a better understanding of the complex relationship between infrastructure operations and uses across major utilities. It offers a flexible collaborative platform to local planners, researchers, business analysts and citizens.

Professor Pascal Perez presented the SMART Infrastructure Dashboard to an audience representing a number of Illawarra Businesses, federal and state government agencies, local councils, as well as the University of Wollongong. His presentation included a series of scenarios illustrating how the dashboard could help service providers and consumers make more informed decisions. A lively Q&A session followed, with a number of councils interested in getting involved and providing their data.
