Get parked is an informative, easy to use interface that connects everyday individuals to the amazing experiences and getaways right in their backyard. Country Victoria has a vast number of parks and sites open to public use, however there is no easy way to find information on these sites and hence can be intimidating for those that are not bush savvy, to plan a bush/outdoor weekend outing.

Team Name: 
Department of Digital Fabulists

Election Stitchup is a data visualisation project for the 2010 and 2013 Senate election results. We decided to work with election data but with a desire to represent it in a way that really stretched GovHack’s horizon - by crocheting the results.

We are using this dataset as it is available on the data.gov.au site, a major data portal for GovHack and indeed the data that partially determines who the Federal Government is!

Crowdfunding and crowdsourcing are proving to be great ways to utilize the economy of scale to affect change – be that local, state or federal government, charity organisations or the lives of individuals. Everybody can make a change for good, but some don’t know how. This is where Helping Hand comes in; utilising the idea of crowdsourcing, data analytics and big data visualisation to understand what charities, causes and community challenges need assistance and where volunteering resources can be best spent.

Find My Toilet

Team Name: 
Hackstreet Boys

An app allowing users to find their closest public amenity (toilets, shower, drinking water), provide feedback rating of the facility and inform the body responsible for the amenity if maintenance is required. By recording the location of users when they indicate they need a facility and providing access to this new dataset to councils and town planners via both an API and a heatmap, it is easy for them to visualise where new amenities are most needed.
