Brisbane Area Suburb Review - BASR

Brisbane Area Suburb Review is a project that allows people to examine and compare different suburbs in the Greater Brisbane area. The previous twenty-one months of new bonds registered with the Queensland Residential Tenancies Authority along with metropolitan analysis from Australian Urban Research Infrastructure Network and Queensland Cyber Infrastructure Foundation makes comparing suburbs an engaging and informative experience.

A large number of datasets are publicly available in GovHack-2015 website. Several relevant information can be obtained from various attributes of individual dataset. Moreover, it can be easily perceived that each of these datasets can be inter-related to infer various valuable analyses, which can increase the richness of the individual data. The main aim of our project work is to introduce a unique contribution towards the direction of finding relationship among different categories of datasets and creating a bridge between those (datasets).

Why do we choose to do it

Many government open-data provides geo-located info useful for disaster relief: real time fire hazard, tide and others. We see that these data can be integrated with mobile phones and other personal devices which has been proven to save lifes.

Project Naya integrate these two source of information to make disater relief efforts.

Who uses it and what does it do for them.

Australia is unfortunately a home of number of disasters, disasters that often causes humongous losses to the Australian community.

Other than being resilient, foreseeing the disasters has been show to be the most efficient way to prevents deaths and losses.

Wouldn’t it be great if there  was an app the would :

Anemu is a mobile app for helping people of all ages identify Australian wildlife in an easy and visual way.  Users can use a photo of an animal they've taken with their phone and compare it to photos of other Animals, browsing based on how similar they think it looks.  Once they've identified the animal, they can look up scientific information about the animal, see the last reported location it was seen and even view a list of articles related to that animal.

As part of GovHack 2015, we came up with multiple ideas and narrowed them down to solve the below three challenges:

1) We often loose data connection when we go for boating - how can we improve navigation experience for boating?

2) How can we improve transportation using Live Traffic cam data?

3) Visualise ICT Data

Purpose:

  • To raise awareness of the growing problem of air pollution and its effects on health.

  • To visualise the main areas of air pollution

  • Attempt to display a connection between a rise in air pollution and respiratory problems (Eg: Lung Cancer).

 

Target audience:

  • Health agencies

  • Environmental agencies

  • General public
