New migrants find it hard to find affordable housing for rent as migrants are not familiar with local areas sufficiently to make an informed decision as to where best to live depending on their circumstances. We recommend ideal suburbs for their rental needs based on Income, Expenses, Gender, Age, Profession and Marital Status by comparing  with existing data as a benchmark.

The Atlas of Living Australia is a great resource for finding out more about living things in Australia. It is also an important resource for crowd sourced recording of wildlife sightings.  Unfortunately, many people do not know about Atalas let alone that they can contribute to it.

There are 100,000 homeless australians. Getting back on your feet once in that position is extremely difficult. Unsung gives Australians without income the tools to be able to provide for themselves and not rely on charity or the government. This is done through a guide to using the gig economy and with a list of free wifi locations that are ranked by the utilities near the location e.g. health services, bathrooms, free food etc. We pulled in this information from open government data sources. 

 

Due to the server issues we weren't able to add all of the datasets used

Finding street side parking in the CBD is one of the most excruciating experience when you live in Sydney. We are all familiar with not being able to get a parking spot close to where we want to be. What if parking is smarter? What if there was a better way?

Edugate is all about identifying the vector of skill-gaps in the market with emerging students into the workforce, to help choose suitability of courses undertaken, TAFE classes chosen in the last years of high school and degrees applied for. This is to amplify student's chances entering the workforce with qualifications that employers are requiring, helping bridge the gap and minimise the chances of unemployment.

School Disaster Resilience

School Disaster Resilience

Disasters especially bushfires can have a large effect on the australian community. Schools especially in rural areas represent very important points in case of a disaster because there may be large numbers of young children that require special planning from emergency services to keep everyone safe. It is also very important for the parents that they know that their children are safe and this is currently left to each individual school as the central department does not have individual students parents contact details.
