Search data.gov.au by the boundary the data is aggregated to

Now that the PSMA Administrative boundaries are out as well as the ABS boundaries - it would be great if you could search data.gov.au by the boundary the data is aggregated to.

 

e.g. I want to search for locality level datasets; or I want to search for local government level datasets

Water managment

As there is limited water resource of fresh water, we can save the water in many cases like of bathing by limiting the use of water in collages.

Code Sharing

it would be nice to be able to share snippets of code for data cleaning, parsing, visualization and analysis with other users.

With syntax support for languages like R and python.

 

See github's 'gist" feature, for an example of what I mean.

 

Other users should also be able to comment on posted scripts.

 

Thanks,

John

I posted this list quite some time ago. Is there any chance someone can work through them ? No need for exhaustive analysis - just a quick response would do. Anyway, here's another suggestion: In the data.gov.au blog there is reference to seeking feedback on dataset quality [https://blog.data.gov.au/news-media/blog/improving-data-quality-datagovau]. Can the facility for providing feedback be provided on the landing ...more »

browse organisations by structural relationship

Organisations sometimes change name: It would be nice if I could trace "previously known as" and "subsequently known as" relatiohsnips between organisations. Taking this a step further, full Machinery of Government changes would also be good ("merged with", "split from" etc). The temporal scope of these MoG changes is also optentially interesting.
