future by providing fast and efficient access to curated housing data that could otherwise take months, years or be impossible to access.​ 

The National Housing Data Exchange enables users to search and access housing related data assets from across Australia by using search terms, tags or filtering by location. It is the central portal to discover Australian housing data and brings together datasets and metadata records from a range of different organisations. This includes an AHDAP managed National Building Footprints dataset fused from Microsoft Bing and Open Street Map data, as well as additional national high value datasets under development. The number of available data assets will continue to grow as the project progresses.

ISO19115 compliant metadata is used to support data search and discovery and the portal is based on the FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible Interoperable and Reusable) to support knowledge discovery and innovation.
