Background:

In Queensland, you are recognised as a senior citizen when you turn 60 and are entitlded to the pension when you enter your late 60s. However, at these moments in life seniors are not provided with useful information that would enable them to be actively involved in their community. Our hack provides a means for service providers and/or senior citizens to generate a printable brochure with relevant information about a local area.

What is "de-identification"? To the average person, it may not be something they're all too familiar with. However, the process of removing or obscuring identifying information from large sets of data, or 'de-identification', is an extremely important process for those who have to perform it. For those in reporting, analysis or publishing roles, de-identification can be a time-consuming and complex task, as there is no simple-to-use universal tool available that allows users to de-identify their data.
