 Why

Geelong is a flourishing city only 55 minutes from the Melbourne CBD. The natural organic growth of the region is now surprise. With ample parks, land and amenities Geelong’s high growth rate is expected to continue into the foreseeable future. A bigger Geelong will can be a better Geelong, but, to keep the status quo policy makers will need to maintain the ratio of key resources per capita. Our beautiful visualization has pooled data from multiple locations and will provide decision makers with a magical oracle, enabling insight into how Geelong’s public facilities will scale over time. Health services, schools and other infrastructure requirements will be forecasted to assist local Government with planning and economic decisions. The tool was created primarily using D3.js, a Javascript library for creating data driven documents.

Who

Our visualization tool can be used by anyone who wants to get a feel where and how much Geelong is going to grow over the next 5, 10, 25 and 50 years.

 

What

The data used for this project was taken from multiple locations. We have used population and economic data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) and local data provided by the City of Greater Geelong as part of the Geelong GovHack 2015.
