Council Stakeholders: Community Development Suggestions: Be as creative as you like, but here are some suggestions to get you started: 1. Create an interactive map or tool which shows the location of free wifi in Geelong with a short description of how to use it. 2. Do some data collection about the wifi available in private businesses and/or the location of digital furniture and add this to the map. 3. Use the data to explore the most popular wifi hotspots and how that might translate into planning for Central Geelong Data suggestions: • GeelongNet Wifi Data

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.
