We believe that diversity and inclusion within any community adds strength; aiming to make sure that our quaken city of Christchurch is an accessible city for all, Discover-ABLE taps into that belief.

It is our sincere hope that we can use technology to bring awareness to the needs and difficulties of people with disabilities especially in the context of local government departments and local data-sets.

Heap Map

Team Name: 
Virtual Heap

Project Decription:  Using virtual reality, we are projecting data into what we call "The Heap Map."  This is a visual and interactive virtual world in which statistical data is shown falling down and collecting into heaps onto a map of NZ.  Targeting intermediate and secondary school children, this will create a fun and engaging way to interact with statistical information.  We gathered data primarily from Statistics New Zealand, such as population and internet accessibility.

2 bored friends are looking to do something.

This friend loves to hike and wants to see something of New Zealand.

Although each friend have done many hikes, they all want to find hidden trails that they haven't all done before.

They found from visiting the DOC site that the Wild Trails app can help them discover trails around their neighbourhood and around New Zealand.

They launch the app and discover trails closest to their current location, trails around New Zealand and also great walks, camp grounds, huts and regional parks.

Dog Found

Team Name: 
Save the Alpacas


A web application that works on all devices/form factors that solves the problem of 

1)  owners losing their dogs and notifying the public to look out for it in their area. 

2)  the public finding a roaming dog and being able to notify the owner first so they avoid the $160 impound fine for the owner

3)  and the local council worker getting dog details efficently along with dog history (plus if a dangerous dog designation!)
