Greater Geelong and Bellarine Access for All

Supported By: 
Tourism Greater Geelong and The Bellarine

The best hack that helps connect visitors and residents who need information regarding levels of accessibility to the wonderful things on offer in Greater Geelong and The Bellarine through the development of an interactive digital mapping solution which can be accessed on smart phones with the potential of audio and multilingual capabilities. These people include people with mobility restrictions, people with disabilities and parents with prams. The current data suggestions relate to Central Geelong, however with more data, this digital solution could work throughout Greater Geelong and The Bellarine.
Council Stakeholders: Disability Advisory Committee, Aged and Disability Services, Tourism Greater Geelong and The Bellarine, Central Geelong Marketing. Suggestions: Be as creative as you like, but here are some suggestions to get you started: 1. Access the current data which has been developed through Barwon Disability Resource Council and use mapping tools to display this information in an easy to use graphical representation (CartoDB, LeafletJS and TileMill are all useful mapping tools). 2. Create a digital solution to be used when in destination with an interactive map whereby additional information can be added in the future, ensure there is the ability to zoom, to hear information via an audio selector, and consider the potential of changing languages on the interactive map dependant on the language selected on a smart phone or tablet device. 3. Ensure the digital solution can be used on various visitor and community websites, apps and accessible via WIFI hot spots with one point of entry for updating information allowing a live feed to the online channels the interactive map is displayed. Data suggestions: • Geelong accessible paths • Geelong footpaths • Geelong built environment • Geelong wifi usage

Geelong VR

Virtual Geelong
Team Name: 

Geelong VR is an immersive 1:1 scale reconstruction of Geelong in virtual reality. By creating a system to correctly place objects using latitude and longitude data, many different objects were able to be added into the virtual environment directly from the provided data sets.

I came to govhack knowing i wanted to build a virtual reality project, and when i saw that the provided data included 3d models of all buildings in the CBD, the choice was obvious.
