Postcode Battle (Liveability Index)

Team Name: 
Level 6.3

We see open government data as a chance for the government to inform its citizens, and for the citizens to inform the government; as a chance to foster communication and cooperation. In our project, we ask: where is infrastructure sufficient, and where are services lacking? If I want to move to a different suburb, where are my needs and interests best catered for?

Sitizens Synergising Synergies


Our idea was to answer a simple question for Synergy, how can we work out which suburbs are best-placed for rooftop solar investment? Or, looked at another way, which suburbs will generate enough solar to power themselves and generate a net positive for the grid?

We can answer this question by looking at two aspects:

  • Total Suburb Generation Potential


  • Total suburb consumption

This will give us our Total Suburb Contribution.


To work out our Total Suburb generation potential, we had to work out:

Talk Gov To Me

Talk Gov To Me is 41st Degree Software's submission for GovHack 2015.

Users access Government data through a mobile app, using voice recognition to query a mash up of Open Government data-sets made available for the GovHack 2015 competition.

Talk Gov To Me then responds to the query, using text to speech, to speak directly to the user.

Problem Statement:
Throughout Australia there are thousands of Volunteers (with over 532,110 working part-time and committing collectively over 2 536 738 hours) selflessly donating their time and efforts for the betterment of Australians. Without these volunteers much needed services in areas of need would not exist. Yet, despite the vast number of charities available many people are unaware of their activities, or dont know how to help in areas which are more remote.
