Project Description


What is "JOBY"? The project video can be watched here.

JOBY is not just an interactive data visualisation tool.

JOBY is not just an APP.

JOBY is not just an integration of multi-source data and multiple advanced methods.

JOBY is a knowledge and data-driven decision-making system, including four parts:

(1) An interactive data visualisation tool for spatial and temporal labour market data presentation.
(2) A user-friendly APP that can be used on both computers and mobile phones for data search and update, geovisualisation decision making, and performing any analysis in terms of users' needs.
(3) A spatial and temporal data analysis toolbox for exploring temporal and geographically local data patterns and regional clusters, and investigating regional economic development, industry and population factors.
(4) A future labour market prediction toolbox for predicting future labour market scenarios using multi-source data, including socio-economic statistical data, satellite remote sensing data and future global climate change scenarios. Economic models, machine learning and spatial and temporal models are integrated for more accurate prediction.

1. Objectives

This project aims at developing a comprehensive a knowledge and data-driven labour market decision-making system. The comprehensive decision system can help government to improve the capacities of in-depth data analysis and strategic management.

Significance

A knowledge and data-driven decision making system
is not just a single data analysis method
or a visualisation tool,
it is a comprehensive system
including both experts' knowledge and data-driven research,
both methods and tools,
and both data analysis and serving for strategic decision making.

Innovations

2. JOBY: knowledge and data-driven labour market decision-making system

2.1 Dynamic data visualisation tool

The monthly unemployment rate in different regions from 2004 to 2015 are visualised using a dynamic data visualisation tool.

2.2 Interactive geovisualisation decision making APP

The geovisualisation decision making APP can be visited via three optional ways.

(1) Directly use it on the website

(2) Scan QR code to use it on your phone

(3) Click this link to visit the website on your computer

2.3 Spatial and temporal data analysis toolbox

Spatial and temporal variation trends analysis.

Enterprise statistics by industries.

2.4 Future labour market prediction toolbox

Multi-source data are integrated to assess the potential factors of the labour market and their regional effects. The explanatory variables include socio-economic statistical data, satellite remote sensing data and future global climate change scenarios.

Economic models, machine learning and spatial and temporal models are integrated to predict future scenarios of labour market, including the unemployment rate, participation rate and employment rate in different regions across Australia.
