My Local School uses open data and open source software to generate alternative school intake zones. These zones are cohesive community regions that take into account the freeways, busy roads, railway lines and other barriers to travel.
Households within these zones have the certainty that their assigned school is the shortest travel distance for their neighbourhood.
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.
