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).

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?

The problem that we wanted to tackle is the unawareness of diseases among the population. We started from the concept that a disease is much easier to prevent than to cure.

The project is to create a user-friendly platform that would bring in meaningful information drawn from the various government research to improve your life expectancy and general health.

“Letting you set the values that you value”

Definition of the problem.

When investment or development decisions are being made, decision makers will often focus on the dollar value of the solution being proposed. While this is a valid measure to use, it can often lead us to overlook the many other values that people hold with respect to the development area proposed. Cultural concerns, ecological impacts and access to people and resources.

Death and taxes

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.
