Science data challenge
How might we make discovering and understanding scientific data for a location possible?
A list of useful Queensland Government open datasets are tagged on data.qld.gov.au
- A tourist searches ‘grocery store Longreach’ and they will see a list of stores, opening hours, address and contact details, ratings, photos, interactive maps, directions. Off they go to get their supplies.
- An agricultural science student searches ‘environmental and natural resource data Longreach’ or ‘environmental and natural resource data Condamine’. What can they find?
What is your solution?
Your solution to this challenge should use at least one science dataset from the Department of Environment and Science and we suggest you use one or more of the following science APIs
