Where are the best places for certain business types to be based?
Where you choose to open a business plays a big role in whether you succeed or fail in small business. Many business owners make these decisions based on gut-feel or by doing extensive desk-research.
Data sources and tools: My Victoria is a new open data platform that provides small businesses mapping and data services at the suburb and LGA level. The My Victoria API provides data including population, income, industry, buildings, transport, schools and hospitals.
Using any dataset on data.vic and the My Vic platform show us how certain businesses might be best placed or revitalise certain suburbs? Are there certain trends in areas that allow us to see what new types of businesses Victorians might start?
