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.

Our application allows for users to explore these agricultural trends down to an SA2 level, that is, a regional level.
