City Science at Monash University: A Year After

Since June 2014 when Monash City Science group was first founded, we have proudly developed and delivered 18 #opendata #bigdata #urbanplanning #transportation #dataviz projects: from mapping pedestrian and bicycle safety in Melbourne to visualizing the spatial distribution of indigenous population in Australia. 

In the past 14 months, we have had more than 22,000 visitors (43% from Melbourne, 6% from Sydney, even 1.5% from London, and 1% from New York). Our most popular project has been the "Melbourne Bike Crash Map" http://goo.gl/nRZh9n with more than 16,000 hits. 

I have received many compliment emails from a wide range of people and organizations, from BreastScreen Victoria to the Federal Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development in Canberra. I am very happy that our work has been useful/helpful/educative/informative/attractive for many people. We're looking forward to many more challenges and opportunities ahead in the next couple of years. We welcome any financial and technical/scientific contribution from individuals and organizations. Please contact me at meead.saberi@monash.edu if you're interested.
