Project Description

Learn about the demographics and stats that make up regions across Australia through a web-based trivia game! the Australia Game makes exploring the diversity of Australian communities fun through a Who Wants to be a Millionaire?-style interface. Using Google Maps, players can see the communities in question and get hints about which one is the correct answer.

Data Story

We've sourced data from AIHW, and the ABS to demonstrate the diverse human geography that makes up our country. We also used Google Maps to generate a cross-referenced GIS database so that we can zoom in on the area that is the subject of each statistic when the questions are asked. The technologies used include Google Go and Javascript.
