Data sources and tools: My Victoria is a new open data platform that provides small businesses mapping and data services at the suburb and LGA level.

The My Victoria API provides data including population, income, industry, buildings, transport, schools and hospitals.

Using any dataset on data.vic, the My Victoria platform, open datasets available to you or your own empirical data show us how a small business might identify certain trends in areas that allow us to see what new types of businesses Victorians might start and in what areas they are most likely to succeed?
