We are hoping to crowd source ideas for how to use Melbourne Water land. Giving users a map of available land with Google Street View images of each site with a way to add comments and view comments by other users.

Holes in the Safety Net Indicator

Team Name: 
Safety Net

Holes in the safety net indicator is a national assessment of the concentration of charitable organisations that work with people at risk of homelessness. It shows locations where there are fewer homeless charities and comparatively larger homeless populations, to encourage growth of charitable organisations in those areas most in need.

Inspired by the Hobo Code of the depression era, this aims to place discreet signage around the city to direct people (homeless and homed alike) to facilities (such as toilets, drinking fountains, showers, sharps disposal). Such signs would be placed at a well-known set of locations (street corners) and point to the nearest such facility. The system would be boot-strapped by placing more obvious signage to draw people's attention to the signs. Issues around literacy are worked around by using common icons/pictographs.

Safety Net is a website designed to ease communication between homeless or at risk people and the services designed to help them. 

By geocoding data for charitable support services, we can provide an easy to use information source that will allow the newly homeless or at risk to  find the appropriate services easily, thus minimising the danger that they will become trapped with the disadvantages of street life. With a few minutes and an Internet connection, they will be able to find the people that can assist in getting them back on their feet.

Problem:

Currently, it's hard, slow and error prone to sell a private vehicle in Victoria. Of the over 300,000 private vehicle transfers, 100,000 of them contained errors. It costs time and money for VicRoads to individually contact the buyer to sort out these errors. Many buyers are completely unaware of the errors they are making.
