Locatio

Team Name: 
Arcton

When hunting for a house, finding out about a neighbourhood often relies on word-of-mouth and local knowledge that is hard to access or simply inaccurate.

We’re solving this problem by augmenting online property listings with hyper-local data that gives you critical information at a glance, saving time and letting you make a more informed decision.

The data will be sourced from a wide range of locations, including the New Zealand Census and police crime statistics. A free browser extension will be created that formats and visualises this data, displaying it to home buyers as they browse property listings on TradeMe.
