Project Description


The Right to the Night project is aimed at creating safer public spaces for women in the Ballarat CBD. Between February and May this year, The City of Ballarat and partners asked women to contribute their perspectives of safety across the CBD.

During the GovHack weekend, we're investigating the data and enriching it by combining it with other open data sets from local and state goverments. We're hoping to draw some interesting connections and provide further insights into why people feel unsafe and what can be done to improve this.


Data Story


We looked at the perceptions of safety data collected by City of Ballarat and overlayed graffiti, CCTV, parking, trees, bollard lighting and public toilet data.
