FUN RUN CBR

We built a web app that plots local points of interest on a map. Users can go in, choose a start point and given the opportunity to select the particular points they have an interest in. After selecting a couple of markers and data sets, the app generates a route and calculates the distance for you to walk or run between them all. It’s kind of like a treasure hunt for Canberra’s cultural gems.

This project features two proof of concepts for enhancing the ACT Government Smart Parking data to improve access to local businesses.

Staying the course is a visual analysis of data provided by the Department of Education about attrition data rates from 2005-2013.

This was created using Tableau Public and Powtoon.

Using this visual analysis, higher education providers can pinpoint areas of focus when considering entry requirements for students. Risk areas of study should reconsider entry requirements or support services to ensure that risky characteristics are reduced or mitigated.

We want to help family, government, organisation and individual to plan for flooding emergencies, better prepared to reduce the damage of flood and save lives. We built a real time flood warning app, that puts relevant and easy to understand information into the hand of the user. Our Flood Watch app shows the real time flood warning on a map overlay, that individuals can timely assess danger and responses to flooding disaster.

The 'SizzleRig' project involves analysis of bushfire data from national, state and territory governments.

CrashHackers

We are using the ACT cyclist crash data (from 2012). We have developed an iOS app that you strap to your handlebar, and it will evaluate the risk of the area in which the cyclist is riding. It will also show the primary cause of the crashes to help the rider avoid accidents.
