A comprehensive national scale human mobility data asset for Australia

A collaborative project between the Trusted Networks Lab, in collaboration with CSIRO and University of Melbourne, has secured a Australia Data Partnerships Grant. The project (https://doi.org/10.47486/DP702) will build a comprehensive national scale human mobility data asset for Australia. Human mobility data is a key ingredient in modelling the spread of infectious diseases through and across populations. This project addresses the challenge of transforming available mobility data into a consistent format that is suitable for analysis in a broad range of research areas. Merging the various individual datasets will drastically improve the quality and coverage of existing datasets and provide a comprehensive national human mobility data asset. The final data asset will be hosted and made publicly available on the Australian Urban Research Infrastructure Network (AURIN). Read the announcement here.
