Greening Space Victoria

Team Name: 
Community Nexus

Greening Space Victoria is about using Melbourne Water land to create more green spaces in Victoria

Stemming off the Greening Space Melbourne, GS Victoria looks at how we can utilise the Melbourne Water land to increase environmental sustainability and accessibility. We look at how we can ‘green’ Victoria through using the Melbourne Water’s land to better facilitate biodiversity, land revegetation and community engagement.

Greening Space Victoria is built for Melbourne Water to work with local councils to build community project targeted to activating Melbourne Water’s land to create as much value for the company

We look at the Victorian land data in conjunction with bike trail data, public amenities and biodiversity data in order to look at the relationship between each of these factors and how they link to the land to provide value to the community. For example, we have walking trailing data sets that can be compiled to Melbourne Water land to create more paths and shorter waiting trailers.

Through Greening Space VIctoria there are many positive effects for the environment and community which serves to increase statewide awareness of climate change and environmental issues. Greening Space Victoria aims to better connect certain recreational trail so there is better access and complexity in their systems.

Data sets used:

  • Melbourne Water
    • Liveability Landuse
  • Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources
    • Great Trails Victoria - Mornington Peninsula Walk
  • Department of Education and Training
    • School locations

Data sets also used for research included other Great Trails map files, AURIN metro-aria.

Data sets that would be useful for further exploration are vegetations and ecosystem data sets.
