What is the Covid Safe Data APP:
Covid Safe Data's goal is to inform people with simple data and give a platform for businesses to reach out into the community.
It uses geodata as well as community review data to help bring down the anxiety we all feel while under restrictions.
It is attempting to achieve two things:
Lower anxiety and bring confidence back to the community.
Give businesses big and small a way to reach out to the community and let them know that they are doing the right thing.

It was very difficult to pick out of all the amazing challenges but we shortlisted these 5.
Living in a post pandemic world,
Road to recovery,
Better Public Spaces,
Our Financial future,
Create a solution to a customer need using the ABS Data API.
Our target Audience is local communities and Business.
We investigated these audiences and came up with some problems that we can help solve.
For local communities:
How safe is my area,
What is available to me.
How can I make my area more covid safe
How can I give back to my community.
How can I get more customers?
How can I reach out to people that we are safe and complying with guidelines?
To solve these questions we used:
The CRISPER data set like
and ABS data that is relevant to the business. Like economic economic and job growth.
Here is the technology that we used and are intending to use.
For the front end we used a wordpress site.
Which enabled us to spin up the site quickly.
We used the Google maps API as a way to present that data that’s familiar to users.
And in the example we used google forms but we plan to move that to Mysql.
We used and intend to further develop our Confluent Kafka solution.
Currently we used batched processes to retrieve the Crisper data, but in the future we intend for this to be streamed and windowed by fortnight.
Currently we batch data from ABS but intend to use the AZURE platform to stream data to business users to keep them informed.
Thank you to the team at Gov hack, supporters and mentors for making this happen!
