Research on digital analysis of painting images has received very little attention. The exact nature of scientific methods seems to be antithesis of art. Nevertheless, several papers have proposed methods to bridge this gap and have obtained interesting results. In fact, some art theorists themselves have pointed out the usefulness of specific quantifiable(More)
SUMMARY The $20m Australian Urban Research Infrastructure Network (AURIN) project (www.aurin.org.au) began in July 2010. AURIN has been tasked with developing a secure, Web-based virtual environment (e-Infrastructure) offering seamless, secure access to diverse, distributed and extremely heterogeneous data sets from numerous agencies with an extensive(More)
In this paper, we present the functional capabilities scoping for a novel eResearch infrastructure providing urban researchers with access to datasets and analytical tools. The AURIN portal provides a "lab in a browser" environment, leveraging a complex, loosely-coupled internal architecture and a growing number of federated data sources. Datasets can be(More)
Big data technologies and a range of Government open data initiatives provide the basis for discovering new insights into cities; how they are planned, how they managed and the day-to-day challenges they face in health, transport and changing population profiles. The Australian Urban Research Infrastructure Network (AURIN – www.aurin.org.au ) project is one(More)
Many/most of the challenges facing urban researchers and indeed policy makers relate to discovery of, access to and subsequent use of heterogeneous urban data sets. These data are typically held by a myriad of government agencies (local, State and Federal), industry and academic research organisations. The Australian Urban Research Infrastructure Network(More)
