An informative website that provides a visualization of dog attacks per council and menacing dogs per council in New Zealand. This gives information to the people about dog attacks and where they are happening so they can influence the council to do something about dog attacks. This information can also help councils compare the occurrence of dog attacks in their area with that of other councils and review their dog control policies.

Smartcity Christchurch

Team Name: 

Aim: to design a simple but informative dashboard for Christchurch - the smartest city on earth!

We're looking to help inform Christchurch residents and council members about their city using datasets such as C02 levels, temperature, pressure, humidity, noise and luminosity. We are also including the functionality to help inform those Christchurch residents affected by the changing river levels about anything rising river related!

We are designing the page with the intention of adding more datasets in the future.

Vida Loca

Connecting people to places by challenging misconceptions.

With VidaLoca we’ve built a tool that enables you to find a place to live that matches to your values while also taking into account affordability, letting you live la vida loca (the crazy life).

Our hope is that this tool connects you to places that closely match what you value in a community, place, or life style that you might not otherwise have considered.

How do I do it?

1) Weigh a broad range of desirability data such as:
