It was developed by the University of Adelaide’s Hugo Centre for Migration and Population Research, in collaboration with Multicultural Affairs.

Users of this web resource can explore key findings at their own pace, categorised into specific topics of migration, with more detailed information on-hand for users with a specific interest. Web maps feature to provide a geospatial context to South Australia’s settlement patterns post-WWII to present day.

Data was provided by state or Local Government Area, benefiting local government and other interested organisations seeking to use this data for policy and planning activities.

Watch how the project was developed.

The Award for Spatial Enablement recognises products or projects in which the application of spatial information, methodology and/or tools has greatly improved the outcomes of a project, process or product. The win makes the project eligible for the national awards to be held in 2020.
