Legends of Tomorrow

Team Name: 
Shape the future

--------------Everyone is the sculptor of future!----------------------------

We are all curious about what the future will look like.

  • Am I going to live in a more crowed neighbourhood?
  •  
  • Where are my future partners from?
  •  
  • Who are my babies making friends with?
  •  
  • Where to find my favourite trees and cute animals?
  •  
  • I heard about climate change, can I feel safe and cool in the future?

You are the answers to those questions!

Our team is using the Government data to tell you the distribution of projected population in Victoria.  Based on births data, we are able to understand the culture backgrounds of newborns, and to what level the culture are bending together in the future. Do you know the mating preference of Australia ladies and gentlemen?  Browse our website to get the answers.

Beside, we also provide you maps of current vegetation conditions.  You can locate your favourite trees along the street of city of Melbourne and understand the water or vegetation quality near your neighbourhood.  We also show you an example the future distribution of certain tree species in Victoria Central highland based on Forest Landscape Simulation Model (LANDIS-II  http://www.landis-ii.org/), to tell you the difference of vegetation distribution under sustainable forest management scenarios.              

Remember everyone is the sculptor of future!

Future climate scenarios

OzClim web site http://www.csiro.au/ozclim/home.do.

Future climate generated from outputs of the Max Planck General Circulation Model (ECHAM5) as provided for the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report based on the A1FI emission scenario. The ECHAM5 model had one of the best overall ratings in terms of matching historical patterns of temperature, rainfall and atmospheric pressure.
