Project Description


Improving search relevancy and discovery, to make data more accessible to the wider public.


Data Story


We utilised the existing data.gov.au search data, and combined it with external data sources such as Google Trends, Twitter Trends and News outlets; we aimed to bring data sets of relevant interests to users who don't entirely know what data to look for and how it might be useful, as well as speeding up the process for people who have direct needs.
