Our project aims to make it easier for and organisations (specifically the ATO) to target underutilized locations to set up their business (or tax help centre).
We used live parking sensor data from City of Melbourne to discover areas that have lots of available parking, and combined this with ATO's data to show available parking in postcodes alongside demand for ATO tax help in each postcode (using number of people in 2021 (as determined by a linear regression on past years) who will be earning $1 - $2000 per fortnight as an indicator of demand).
