Agricultura

Team Name: 
Totally Original

Our application is an investigation into statistics relating to the Australian agricultural industry. Using extensive datasets acquired from the Australian Bureau of Statistics, we have created an online app that allows users to explore data trends relating to annual agricultural turnouts. The statistics we explored were specifically, industry turnovers, industry value and employment numbers in Australian regions heavily dependent on agriculture. Our application allows for users to explore these agricultural trends down to an SA2 level, that is, a regional level.

Over the course of the hack, we went through several different ideas, and all of those ideas went through several iterations and evolutions of their own. Being very new to not only Xcode and iOS development, but also Swift as a language. We were cautious to avoid ideas and iterations that seemed too farfetched or vulnerable to feature creep. Eventually we settled on smart roads.

"Bringing Government Data to Life"

-Dash- displays a high quality and curated dashboard that tells the story of Government and Australian data across key topic areas such as Energy, Finance, Health and Social. Furthermore -Dash- makes government data inclusive by allowing non-coders to search across government portals to interact with and visualise government data. 

It is simple to use and can be embedded in the data.gov.au home page.

So why do we need -Dash-?
