A video is inappropriate. Essentially I am scraping large volumes of open data from government and public sources, centralising and identifying regular expressions from random samples of data points from across each table and row, alongside selected pattern recognition statastical tools (clustering table data together for initial matching, anf fluctuating glanularity based on a decision framework) to produce decision making trees for the linking of relationships between large quantities of datasets in a logarithmic fashion, without having to process every individual data point.

Air Bubble

Team Leo and Sons

Hi, were are Team Leo and Sons and this is our project Air Bubble.


Air Bubble is a way to visualise varying differences in air quality across different locations in Tasmania.


People submit their postcode via the webapp and the area of the closest air monitoring station is shown on the map. The bubble machine then responds with a display of your air quality. More Bubbles means cleaner air and less bubbles means more particulates (less clean air).

Concept: To provide an improvement on the current rainfall map, provided by BOM, that is an easily interpreted visual representation of not only rainfall, but also the impact of the rainfall on the landscape, the potential of flooding and highlight any immediate threats to:


> Roads and bridges

> Walkways

> Businesses

> Residential areas

The system will not only display present coverage, but also utulising predictive modelling, will give an approximate indication of future coverage, and alert residents and businesses to any immediate or future threat or impedance.
