Climate Flow

The Australian Bureau of Meterology maintains almost 18,000 autonomous weather stations around the country, collecting Climate data such as rainfall totals, temperature extrema and windspeeds. Many of the stations have been operational since the late 19th century, so there is a wealth of information about how the climate changes over time in different parts of the country. The information, although technically available to the public, is isolated in separate websites for each station which makes it hard to interpret any useful trends to be found.

Qschools is an interactive mobile and web application that delivers a rich source of information to people seeking it.  It uses a material design styled theme to help convey the data.  An innovative and unique feature is the NLP (Natural Language Processing) search engine.  It allows users to run natural language queries such as "What is a school near the Brisbane City that excels in reading?".  This removes the need for complicated and convoluted search boxes and menus.

‘I had a question about a development in my street. Even though I found the answer, it took me a very long time. I wondered if there was a better way.’
Elizabeth Gray

 

The Problem
Increasing population requires development and everyone needs to benefit from it. Development is not without risks and pain. Residents need to know how developments will affect them and governments and planners need to understand the community’s needs.
