Our idea is to organise various demographics of each suburbs, such as crime rate, nbn availability, ease of transit, that can influence people to buy (or rent) properties. The aim is to display the markers on the map which makes it easier for the user to compare various suburbs and plan their investment. Also, the government can utilise this map to do urban plannings.
We will be using the open data sets provided by the government including the ones for crime rate, census, schools, jobs etc. to display markers on the map
