It's A Dog's Life

Team Name: 
Double Stuffed

At the start of the project we had lots of ideas, we decided to work on a dogs life because it was more interesting and we wouldn't get bored working on it. Our project is an infographic poster which informs people about dog parks, the top breeds in the area and how many attacks have been in the suburbs, as well as locations of parks in Playford and Salisbury also the suburb with the most dogs. Our project is based on people who have dogs and they are trying to find a park where they can take their dog. The data we have used was 2015 dog registration dataset.

Penny Parking

One tap to park, one tap to go
Team Name: 

We are creating a parking app which will help to streamline public car parks and payments. We will achieve this by negotiating a continuous 'pay as you go' system for public and kerbside car parks which would be incorporated into in-app payments and parking inspector's data so no need to carry petty cash in your car; it also means that you're not paying for unused time. In addition, we'll have a buddy system, similar to Uber, which notifies users when other users are about to leave parks close to their destination.

datasets: on street parking data

More and more people choose walking or cycling instead of driving, however, there are over 2,000 children bicyclists injured since 2005 and over 16,000 road accidence happened last year in South Australia.

To keep road safe for everyone, share the road equally, we create this application to help public find the best route to walking or cycling.

How it works:

Step 1. Plan Routes

•Plan the best three routes based on the start/end point•Calculate the travel time and distance based on the Google map API
