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).

As part of GovHack 2015, we came up with multiple ideas and narrowed them down to solve the below three challenges:

1) We often loose data connection when we go for boating - how can we improve navigation experience for boating?

2) How can we improve transportation using Live Traffic cam data?

3) Visualise ICT Data

PROJECT KNOCONOMY

This project was cultivated by the need to assist in spreading "what is" and "where is" knowledge economy in Queensland.

The simplest way our team thought to deliver this need was via a visual medium, in the form of an Infographic.

We believe that the infographic will assist in joining the dots for Queenslanders, to show the important need of forming collaboration between QLD's schools, universities, researchers, businesses and the start-up community ecosystem.
