With the democratisation of information and analytics, more and more data is made available to planners and policy makers, community groups and others interested in city plan making. Professor Chris Pettit and the UNSW City Futures Research Centre (UNSW Built Environment) recently launched the CityViz website to make urban big data visible.

To provide up-to-date relevant legislative, ethical and security information specifically to the Australian health and medical research community, the Intersect-led national med.data.edu.au project undertook extensive research into the legislative and best practice landscape that impacts on data-driven human research in Australia. A new interactive guide is now available.

Professor Clare Collins and Dr Megan Rollo are committed to finding nutrition research solutions to tackle Australia’s obesity epidemic, harnessing technology and the power of online platforms and the media to get the message out on a big scale via the Australian Eating Survey.

Intersect congratulates Founding CEO Professor Mike Briers on his appointment as Officer in the General Division of the Order of Australia in the 2016 Queens Birthday Honours for distinguished service to the finance and digital technology sectors, particularly in the area of data intensive research and analysis, to higher education, and to Judo.
