This paper introduces an online spatial data portal with advanced data access, analytical and visualisation capabilities which can be used for evidence based city planning and supporting data driven research. Through a case study approach, focused in the city of Melbourne, the authors show how the Australian Urban Infrastructure Network (AURIN) portal can be used to investigate a multifacetted approach to understanding the various spatial dimension of livability. While the tools explore separate facets of livability (employment, housing, health service and walkability), their outputs flow through to the other tools showing the benefits of integrated systems.
