How might Queenslanders find out more about where they live?
The Queensland Government manages and publishes a large amount of spatial and non-spatial data at property, locality and local government area level but how might a member of the public quickly and easily find and interact with information about their specific area of interest.
Any solution must be able to be applied state-wide not just to a single local government area or a single region and allow the user to easily find and interact with the data.
Consider potential users in Cairns, Longreach or Ipswich, all have some interest in learning more about their area including: property information, disaster management, vegetation, water, mining or history of the area.
Eligibility: We strongly recommend using the Queensland Government open datasets on data.qld.gov.au and spatial web services on QSpatial
Entry: Challenge entry is only available to teams in Queensland.
