We hope to help people explore the local indigenous culture and heritage of the places we live. Drawing from diverse sources we hope to present nearby points of interest, historical records and cultural significance allowing people to explore the sometimes invisible indigenous world around them.

The project covers the criteria for the following prizes:

Exploring what Victoria has to offer – Use at least two data sets from Victoria
Celebrate Aboriginal Melbourne – engages the broader Melbourne community in a celebration of past and contemporary Aboriginal Melbourne

International Digital Humanities Hack - we aim to help people engage in and celebrate cultural and intellectual data

Best Open Government Data Hack - open category

Bounty: ABC regional bounty - Bonus credit is given for the mash up of ABC and non-ABC data
Bounty: Open source bounty ($2000) Supported by Linux Australia - I just love open source and wish I was eligible for this... It's GPL if that counts ;)
Bounty: Indigenous issues bounty - Hopefully leading to greater respect of aboriginal sites and culture
