The Regional Challenge

Supported By: 
City of Greater Geelong (Digital Geelong)

Hack needs to use datasets from multiple Councils in Victorias south west region. A good hack often covers multiple jurisdictions. Local Government in the Southwest of Victoria have made a concerted effort to release more open data, but the proof of value is ever present. This presents an opportunity to use common LG data mashed up with State and other datsets to deliver a regional outcome. Anything goes for this Hack.

 

Eligibility Criteria

Must use at least one Geelong Council open data sets.

Get Parked

A-Team

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.
