Project Description


We will use historic data sets that cover parking duration/occupancy, pedestrian traffic, congestion maps, and air quality, to establish a base line for congestion in the Noosa’s Hastings Street area. We will then develop vehicle counters to collect data in real time, to provide a live feed on car parking availability in the local area. We will also use air quality sensors to provide a live feed of the level of vehicle emissions in Hastings Street.
Using roadside signage and online updates, visitors will be advised to divert to public transport or park’n’ride locations when there is low parking availability, or poor air quality due to excessive vehicle emissions, in Hastings Street.


Data Story

Data Set

Air Quality readings

Description of Use: Data was used for checking readings of Air Quality and their link to congested areas with high traffic flow
