As we expect a rapid growth of population in the greater Launceston community, we want to develop a website containing useful data. The data indicates locations of different places where family can visit, public facilities, and bike routes. And the information provided on the website can bring convenience to local residents. Hence, we believe that this will definitely help the community become better.
Our webpages use various types of open data built by the Tasmanian government. It shows detailed information about playgrounds and bike routes within the greater Launceston area. On top of this, calendar is also appended for a better scheduling if people need to book facilities such as public seatings. There is also a data showing the points of booked seatings on different dates. Furthermore, photos of scenic spots also become a highlighted feature of our project work.
Helping a social impact ‘start up’ (small organisation) to tell their story
Small and informal community/interest groups who have formed to solve local problems need data to know if their activities are making a difference and to re-design programs. How can we help these groups tell their story through data so they can seek support (political, financial, and on the ground) by showing how their programs are working, and decide where to focus next?
Choose one of the following questions to address:
1. How can recent and future changes in the labour market help prepare young
people for job opportunities?
2. What can we learn from case studies of regional labour markets? For example,
what does rapid change in the industries or occupations within a region tell us about the needs of employers/workers in other regional labour markets
