Project Description


Team 460 presents CoolMove, a cooler and more seamless experience for transport users in NSW and elsewhere in Australia. In addition to the usual trip planning on public transport networks, CoolMove also shows users the coolest walking routes for users to access public transport without breaking into a sweat in the summer heat.


Data Story


CoolMove is a cooler public transport experience from Team 460. Users of CoolMove can now enjoy a more seamless experience getting to and from public transport without breaking into a sweat in the summer heat, thanks to the leveraging of open government datasets on urban heat and green cover.
