CrowdQuests is a game which has quests and missions to encourage physical activity and learning about points of interests. The quests are designed for:
* Learning about locations
* Crowdsourcing data updates
* Crowdsourcing new information
* Knowledge about problems
* Encouraging certain behaviours
CrowdQuests can be used by councils, agencies and corporations to crowdsource data and geospatial audits through a game interface. The game engine uses predictive user behaviour to encourage increased activity and usage. Challenges and missions can be submitted along with data sets.
We are aware we are not eligible for prizes/awards but are keen to help your agency crowdsource data audits and/or change behaviour through a game
We have used a bunch of data from Launceston City Council (and can do the same from Hobart City Council) to load up a base layer on our map. It provides the opportunity for players to update details about what is shown on the map based on Quests that will be promoted to users based on their location and demographic. The demographic data and behaviours are preloaded into our algorithms to provide better Quest suggestions. Data from ABS and G-NAF and various other jurisdictions were used to work this out.
New data provided by players will be then reported to the relevant jurisdictions.
Photos taken would be processed by CrowdQuests servers using image recognition to produce rich meta data (including geotagging).
Description of Use: For Quirky Canberra we are creating some quests to get people to go to visit quirky canberra and discover more! To do this we grabbed data about different spaces to send them there.
How can open data be used to make a social impact, contributing to the betterment of society? How can we improve prospects for children, and education, using open data?
What sort of impact can be made on homelessness, mental health outcomes, or the environment, using open data?
More than apps and maps: help government decide with data
How can we combine data to help government make their big and small decisions?
Government makes decisions every day—with long term consequences such as the location of a school, or on a small scale such as the rostering of helpdesk staff.
How can open data be presented on search.data.gov.au to make it easier and friendlier to use? Does this mean making it more similar to using standard search engines, like Google, or something else entirely?
