Mind The Gapp

Black Swan

We call ourselves the lucky country. The land of dreams. The sunburnt country, a land of sweeping plains. Yet Indigenous Australians die 10 years earlier than the rest of us. 97% of Indigenous Australians experience racism on a weekly basis. Their kids are more likely to go to jail then they are to university. How do we reconcile the Australian dream with these hard facts?

Love Hansard but wish it was somehow represented on a map? So do we. That's why we created Question Time.

We love political banter, and we wanted to visualise how political debate occurs over time. For each day of the 2015 – 2016 NSW Parliament, Question Time visualises mentions of NSW suburbs found in the NSW Parliament Hansard with a heatmap of how unusually often each suburb was mentioned.

This project concentrates on interpreting and visualising IP Australia's rich data holdings to provide value to the agency and the public. 

Navigating the IP Australia systems may be daunting for applicants with limited to no experience with IP registration. We aimed to provide an intuitive tool which enables patent and trademark applicants in their choices, especially regarding choices around self-filing versus engaging an attorney.

FireAlert is an app designed to utilise all the live datastreams related to bushfires in Australia to save lives.

The app combines live incident data from Queensland and NSW as well as the Australian Sentinel satalight data to detect when fires appear close to those with the app. Because internet access can be patchy, the app uses the last known location of the user and sends a text to them saying that a fire is close as well as providing informative information on the app's screen such as how close the nearest fire is.
