We chose the ABC broadcast data as we felt it was a data set that most people could relate to. Who hasn't spend an afternoon watching ABC?

Using our app users can pick a year and a state and get the most played shows between 3pm and 7pm. We use third party apis like thetvdb and youtube to give some interesting data about the show.

  • Does anyone really remember how their representatives vote in parliament?

  • Probably not.

Who We Are

Team Name: 
Powderpuff Sugarstuff

Who We Are aims to explore the diversity of Australia's population - where we came from, what we do and believe, and where we're headed. Our team decided early on that we wanted to do a project which highlighted some aspect of the community, with some early options being helping to make local charities more visible, make meeting up with other dog owners at the various dog parks easier, and exploring how youth detention rates are changing.

The Gentlemen Bushranger

Team Name: 
Dank HAM

Our project is designed to be an educational insight into 18th century Van Diemens land, Tasmania. In a time when the majority of the population was composed of convicts,  British soldiers and free-settlers. We chose this topic to increase appreciation for education and history of Tasmania. We also wanted to promote awareness to the existence of data surrounding our early beginnings as a colony, and to promote this data being made easily accesible in an easy to use form.
