Cemetery Search Information New Zealand

Team Name:

The project we have built is called 'Cemetery Search Information New Zealand(CSI NZ)'.  CSI provides a way to search the cemetery records of all regions in New Zealand that have published their cemetery data online. 
People using this application will have a fast, easy way to find out where relatives are buried, and information about the grave plot - this includes things like viewing the gravestone, finding the location of the grave in the cemetery, identifying the neighbouring plots, etc.

Rainfall Information

Rainfall information is sourced from The National Climate Database (http://cliflo.niwa.co.nz/ ).

Data used is limited to a set of weather stations that have a lot of data and are current active.

The data queried is average rainfall for each month over the past 5 years (2010-2015).

The problem we focused on was inequality. This was a meaty area to dig into, so we focused our attention on the general public's perceptions about poverty in New Zealand. We wanted to create empathy and understanding around what depravation means for someone's life, and turn data back into stories.

We created a simulator for people to compare two lives. Users select two regions and are introduced to two young characters. The game then rolls through their lifetime and presents statistically likely events based on data mapped back to their geographical area unit.

Crime Sheep aims to make New Zealand crime statistics much more interesting and accessible for the general public. We believe that by raising awareness around crime statistics we will be challenging people to rise above what may be expected of them or their peers and beat the odds.

Our target users are young people between the ages of 15-19 because they are generally tech savvy and are in a more impressionable position in society as they are moving from adolescence into young adulthood. We believe that because of this they are more likely to be positively influenced our project.

Fill the Gap

Fill the Gap

Our primary source of data was the skill shortage list by immigration. We also used rate of attrition and enrollment by age data- from education, median income by industry from stats nz (LEED). These things helped us identify the need for our solution and design the form it would take. 

We believe education is timeless. The education system doesn’t operate that way. The sage on the stage is struggling against the digital guide in our pockets.
