VIC/TAS Industry Talk: Data in the Park – Using Sensors in Green Spaces
August 16, 2023 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm ACSTFree – $25.00
Data in the Park – Using Sensors in Green Spaces
Join staff from the City of Melbourne to explore their Data in the Park Program, which won the Parks and Leisure Australia (Vic/Tas) Best Use of Technology Award for 2023.
City of Melbourne’s Data in the Park Program
Data in the Park is an ongoing City of Melbourne program using sensors and other smart devices to test how to best monitor use and activity in parks, playgrounds and gardens across the city. These parks have been transformed into ‘smart parks’: open spaces that can express their environments and how they’re used through technology and captured data.
This presentation will share some key insights from four active ‘smart’ parks in the City of Melbourne and share learnings to help other parks and leisure professionals undertake similar projects.
