The Digital Media, Location Awareness, and the Politics of Geodata project is a three-year (2018–2021) research project funded by the Australian Research Council’s Discovery Projects scheme.

Led from QUT’s Digital Media Research Centre, and drawing together a multidisciplinary and international research team, the project critically examines the increasingly pervasive role of location metadata (or geodata) in Australian smartphone practices and cultures and the implications this has for users, industry, and public administration.
