Project Description

OpTiTech Navigation Systems is an mobile app that utilises the ACT road safety camera program. The app is designed to show you the traffic speed camera locations, as well as projections of traffic congestion. Interestingly, the app also gives live feed expiation notice system (ENS) data within a local area precinct. The app provides statistical information on volumes of expiation notice offences processed in the program. Road safety experts have evaluated that by using a Optic Navigation systems mobile app that the amount of speeding related offences has a tendency to be reduced by' 6% to 8%' on roads with mobile cameras . This reduction in speeds coincided with a '25% to 30%' reduction in serious injury crashes on roads where the cameras were being used. Finally, the evaluation of the program also showed that serious injury crashes at red light camera intersections dropped. Therefore, OptiTech's technological program is the one stop solution for road safety ; locally, nationally, or globally.

How do You use the app?

When you select 'nominate a location for a mobile speed camera' you will be prompted to use the interactive map to pinpoint the location you are nominating. The first step is all about entering columns into the data set which needs to be quickly searched. Real live feeds of columns in the dataset which will be used in the following jurisdictions :-
The month the offence was committed
The jurisdiction in which the vehicle is registered
The client category
Infringement type
Camera type
Camera location code
Location description
Offence description
Total infringement penalty amount
Total Infringement count
Withdrawn infringement amount
Withdrawn infringement count
Data set Type to be searched on the app.
Camera Type; This column displays the particular type of camera used in that location.
Camera location code; A code is assigned to each location.
Latitude; Latitude and longitude are combined to give a precise location on a map.
Location; describes the street, or cross-streets where the camera is located.
Location; the latitude and longitude for mapping purposes.

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?

TM-Link Data Discovery

TM-Link is a newly available trade mark database developed in collaboration between IP Australia, Swinburne University and Melbourne University. TM-Link includes administrative data from jurisdictions across the world, linked at the application level by advanced neural network algorithms. We are encouraging hackers to explore this new data set and consider what creative visualisations, innovative insights and/or opportunities to further enrich the data they might imagine.
