DataDecks is a multiplayer card game that is played online. Players are rewarded for having knowledge of their country and its people. To start, it will be focused on data about regions of New Zealand from the 2013 census, historic weather and 2014 MP election, with the project being designed to allow easy expansions based on other datasets.

The project is powered by a Node.js server and uses WebSockets to communicate with a mobile-first frontend.

 

Datasets Used: 
2013 Census Data (http://www.stats.govt.nz/StatsMaps/Home/Maps/2013-census-population-dwelling-map.aspx) , NIWA Climate Summaries (https://www.niwa.co.nz/education-and-training/schools/resources/climate), MP Expenses (http://www.parliament.nz/en-nz/MPP/MPs/Expenses), Electorate Candidate Votes (http://www.electionresults.govt.nz/electionresults_2014/e9/html/e9_part6.html)
