In order to visualise the future, first we must be able to understand the relationships between our data sets. Tapestry enables us to visualise exactly how changes in data will affect the entire tapestry of information, available to city planners of the future. How do trends in information affect trends in the same time frame?
Will there be less cars? How does this affect air quality?
Is the population booming? How does this affect the employment rate?
Tapestry enables you to visualise these relationships as they travel into the future.
Tapestry allows anyone to explore, search for and experiment with their own data stories, based on correlations which have not been considered in the past.
Although correlation is not causation, perhaps trends in information over time have profound, and yet undetermined effects on other datasets.
How do we use data from the past to predict a better future for Canberra? How do we best support the diversity of our community? Optimise the way we travel and transport goods throughout our city? Predict the jobs of the future – and the skills needed for them? Connect our citizens with their environment?
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
