Project Description


The Our Stories app is a Wikipedia like app that allows people to view Australian stories. It is allowing these Australian stories to be more open and allowing them to be used by others for educational or personal use.


Data Story


We have used various history orientated data sets, which would be able to be used for the app to fact check the user written stories uploaded on the app. Our challenges are also based around using data in new and interesting ways to make it more open to the public.
