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?

  • Total suburb consumption

This will give us our Total Suburb Contribution.

 

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