Project Description


We believe citizens can make more informed choices and decisions when they can augment their ideas and opinions with empirical data. The data is there but locked away in arcane inaccessible databases. Our projects makes visual interfaces for this data and demonstrates how it valuable in 3 separate examples
The first is articulating preventable hospital admissions,
The second is engaging the community for feedback on e-monbility locations
and the third is citizen science weather stations that engage and bring the community together both physically rhough workshops but digitally through the networking of the telemetric modules


Data Story


We have used a variety of datasets
NTG health dataset showing preventable hospital admissions was downloaded into google sheets and the NT data isolated, when then created a separate sheet with the northern Territory's 6 geographic regions with their latitude and longtitude. When used a new microsoft product POWER BI to build an interactive web based data interrogation tool

For the 2 other City of Darwin challenges we used a variety ofkml datasets showing aspects of the city so citizens better understand their environment in which they live. We build a google map which has a toggle menu allowing different layers to be turned on and off.

We believe it is important to have all the data available on one page to make it accessible

Data Set

2017 Average Park Water Usage
