THE GROWTH SPOT

THE GROWTH SPOT LOGO
Team Name: 
Pipe Dream

The platform we built is called The Growth Spot. It is a data visualisation tool used to show how a particular industry is growing or shrinking in a given region of Australia, using several available metrics from the innovation data set. This is a platform technology that will one day have the ability to accrue data as it is added to the database using automated data mining technology. We would also like to implement a regression analysis system to provide predictive information regarding the performance of an industry of interest.

Parking in the city is a growing problem as population increased since the amount of parking remain close to constraint.

when a car driver looks for parking in the city, it causes unnecessary traffic in the city. the driver has to drive round and until a parking spot is found.an incosiderate drive round and round until a parking spot is found. an inconsiderate driver would wait and block the follow traffic.

the longer the driver take to find spot, the more unnecessary pollution is released.
