Unleashed / Govhack 2016 entry: R U Open

RU Open
Our group, Bob’ gang submitted four entries for 2016 Unleashed Open Data event at Adelaide. R U Open was one of the app idea we pitched. It is an augmented reality app to locate services around you that are open.

Our aim is to help a user find food and entertainment services in the immediate vicinity. The heart of the service is an Augmented Reality (AR) app which would use business and dining permits datasets (we have used Outdoor dining permits – Adelaide City Council found at data.sa.gov.au for proof-of-concept) to determine which business locations are open at the time the app is being used in the user’s immediate vicinity.

The app would also allow relevant businesses to subscribe and provide information on menu and current campaigns (e.g. special offers) which can be displayed when the user taps on the marker designating the business location on the AR app.

Unleashed / Govhack 2015 entry: Hack my city

Designed to increase youth engagement with City Planning, the intent of Hack my City is to let users see each building within Adelaide, modify the building and save the new model to their profile. Using the Hack My City web interface, it’s possible to recolour and resize Adelaide’s buildings according to your creative whim! Users can also print 3D models from Hack My City. Along with these features, accompanying factual information and historic photographs provide the user with an historical understanding of our city.

Unleashed / Govhack 2015 entry: Should I Stay or Should I Go?

Group project for 2015 Unleashed SA Adelaide event.  Team: Data Dingoes

Young Australians are often faced with the big decision whether to stay in the city they were raised in, or move interstate for employment opportunities or to be with a loved one. It’s a big life decision. But how do you decide? Should I stay or should I go?
Adelaide loses lots of young graduates. They may earn more interstate but what about housing affordability or lifestyle?
Our app pulls together relevant data points to help individuals reach a meaningful decision.
