High-value transdiciplinary digital collections

RMIT University

Project Description

The project will be centered on socio-economic, geospatial, environmental and digital architecture and design collections and seek to complement these with research data from these Enabling Capability Platforms (ECPs) and contributing disciplines; it is intended to link the collections and related research data in smart way and create value and opportunities from these collections as springboards for analytics and further study, modelling and simulation.

The medium-term aims include improving metadata (research collection descriptions) and its quality, publicising collections through Research Data Australia (RDA) internationally visibly with all the search, maintenance and reuse functions already supported by RDA, and promoting RMIT research marketing and branding in areas of clear excellence and impact.
