​​​​​​​About

 

 

 

This is a web application created by team Futuristic Blanket. The application uses the dataset “Air Quality Monitoring 2015”. The intention is to inform users of specific pollutant concentration in different parts of Queensland and to create awareness about how these pollutants are being introduced into the atmosphere and how human activities are contributing to this.

 

Life Explorer

Life Explorer is a mobile-based application that offers a platform for residents and travellers to discover events held within Brisbane.

Users are prompted to select an adjective that best describes the day they would like to have. This then generates a list of events that are correlated with that adjective in the eyes of those who previously attended them. The application also enables storytelling about events, allowing event-seekers to understand (and later experience) the city of Brisbane from a new set of eyes.

Vectoring Brisbane

Team Name: 
Crafty Hackers

 

For this project we were interested in seeing what we could create using geographical data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

We started with the local government areas for Queensland, looking at how we could use the shapes of the various districts to create a puzzle of our state.  We then ‘zoomed in’ to make a pendant of the Brisbane City Council area (river included!)

Using a different dataset, we also made a puzzle of the different postcode groups within the greater Brisbane area.

Mother Nature

If someone doesn't complain, it's easy for us to ignore them. Sometimes we do more. We abuse and take advantage -- particularly if it means we profit, or it's for our own convenience.

If our earth was a human being standing next to us, what would it look like? Would we react and change our behavior, or just turn away ...again?​​​​​​​

Mother Nature is a humanoid art form that exhibits the state of the environment.
