Saving energy is becoming even more crucial in the modern age, but how do we find out what the long term impact of different lifestyle choices will be on our overall energy consumption?

Our Philisophy is to "Serve and protect". Our project forfills this idea as we have designed an application to assists cyclists when riding on the road. we chose this data as one of our group members has had many encounters of crashing whilst commuting on his bike. Many accidents are also caused by cyclists listening to music, unable to hear the environment around them. We were also influenced by the data set, as the task of translating this data into usable data into a user-friendly interface matched out skill set.

Bridge the Ditch

New Zealand is on-board for Govhack 2015!

We heard the news and felt at ease.  New Zealanders joining Govhack is like welcoming your first cousin into your home. Australians and New Zealanders know each other. We seem to have stood together throughout the years. We have shed blood together, in way too many wars. We have cheered together, but rarely for the same team. And we have shed tears together through national heartache and hardships.

They say that there are only two certainties in life: death and taxes.

But we were thinking… what if we used government data to work out which causes of death we should make less certain to improve our tax dollars.

To bring a bit of black humour to tax data, we used the ATO’s Individual tax tables and compared it to the deaths recorded by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare’s GRIM books for 2012. We also looked at the AIHW reports for Cancer mortality and health expenditure.
