City of Melbourne
This is a multi-stage, multi-year project to design, build and manage an online land use and infrastructure demand model for the City of Melbourne. Using open-source software and a well-designed user interface, it gives users across the City Council access to sophisticated demand modelling capability. It's primary purpose is to ensure all planners and analysts within the City are working with the same data sources.
Perhaps the most innovative aspect of the project is the collaborative way in which the tool has been built, with Geografia personnel working alongside City staff to ensure the system is customised to their needs. In time the entire system will be handed over to the City with no need for consultant involvement.
