Project Description


Looking to Learn about BigData, OpenData Sets, data visualisation and interpretation.


Data Story


Once upon a time some technophiles thought it would be a good idea to learn about big data.

::Challenge:: Protecting our Carers:
We took data from DSS and produced a heat map across Australia of young people who receive Carers payments to gain insights into their location to try and help identify how to best identify potential carers.

::Challenge:: Saving Lives through Data:
Limited Public Data. Simulated Internet of things Hospital of the future and how that might be visualised.

::Challenge::
Healthy Canberra (ACT Regional)
Healthy Communities (National)
My Canberra (ACT Regional)
Caring Canberra (ACT Regional)
::Solution::
We took data about facilities, points of interest and scenic spots in a local region (Canberra) and have used that data to visualise, analyse and provide info in the form of a mobile app connecting people to amenities, bike trails, basketball courts etc. By superimposing a range of datasets onto several maps, we also gathered a range of insights to help inform Government decisions about the positioning of public amenities and safer cycling paths. The app would also serve as a feedback channel where people can report hazards, rate the cleanliness of public facilities, and point out new locations for others of the community to get active!
