Titled Geo Spot, the application we have proposed is technologically innovative - using a wide variety of local, and state datasets to create an accurate digital map of Australian society. Using this map, we aim to allow people - young and old - to find facilities, create events, and socialise with friends. As a result, Geo Spot is both socially and practically accessible, and can often be found bringing together friends, family, and peers.

The Application


Team Name: 
The Walking Hackers

In Adelaide, the government is providing free WiFi for everyone, especially in the CBD area. The Adelaide city council claims that it is the largest and most performing City WiFi network in Australia and is on par with the best in the world in terms of coverage and services offering. Although, the government claims that it is the best public wifi network, we intend to analyze the speed, the number of users and the usage patterns in order to make it even better. Through our project we will try to find the usage patterns and provide suggestions on optimization of the access point locations.
