Searchable database of library / museum / art gallery online exhibitions. These are produced to accompany physical exhibitions and just as much research goes into the online exhibition as to the physical. These have great research value to a variety of people depending on the content - art historians, family historians, social reasearchers, students, etc. When the exhibition is over, the exhibition pages are often relegated... more »
A list of Aus School term dates is here: http://australia.gov.au/topics/australian-facts-and-figures/school-term-dates It would be great to have them in iCalendar format so you could download them all/selected states/territories depending on need. Differentation between teacher and student start/finish dates would be excellent. Differing start/finish dates would also be good - for example, Colleges in Tasmania have slightly... more »
The ABC has released several aggregate data sets from the Vote Compass survey run prior to the federal election. Is it also possible to get the (anonymous) raw data, that is the answers to all questions and demographics for each response. This would allow heat maps to be produced, i.e. of response positions on the graph, either overall (demographically weighted), or for specific demographics. It would also allow correlation... more »
The AEC has been reported as having a program, EasyCount, for calculating election results, into which the raw voting data is entered.
This raw data, as input, should be released, allowing analysis of preference trends, comparison of alternative counting methods, and verification of the AEC software.
Voting data is already anonymous, so there should be no privacy implications.
It would be fantastic if I could obtain a regular update of federal members of parliament and their current positions.
The page at http://www.aph.gov.au/live lists the current available live streams from Parliament House.
It would be great to have the stream URIs listed in an easy to use format such as JSON or XML.
This could then be used to make other apps, for example something to list and play the available streams on a Samsung Smart Hub TV.
Is there a data set which includes payment data for the following data set
access to local, state and federal asset data registers could open up useful opportunities to better manage assets across organisation through repurposing, maintaining, procurement planning etc
access to dataset & api would be useful to support a range of applications from mobile to natural language search
Recently the Australian Government funded the update of design rainfall intensities across Australia. However access to the data has been limited to a web site portal with the ability to download point data only. In order to undertaken more accurate flood modelling the grid of IFD over a catchment is required. There is no method to access the grid through the current approach. Why cant the entire grid data set not be... more »
The ACMA makes available a CD-ROM of licence approvals. The cost (around $120) seems more of a 'cost recovery' for handling requests rather than making a profit. http://www.acma.gov.au/Industry/Spectrum/Radiocomms-licensing/Register-of-radiocommunications-licences/licence-data-sales-apparatus-licences-acma A downloadable version, refreshed perhaps monthly or quarterly, would be useful and allow people to look at, for... more »
The Australian Business Register provides a list of Deductible Gift Recipient endorsed organisations (http://abr.business.gov.au/DgrListing.aspx). Could this information be added to data.gov.au and updated on a regular basis.
Searchable dataset using the data from the Australian Lobbyist Register.
http://periodicdisclosures.aec.gov.au/ http://electiondisclosures.aec.gov.au/ AEC maintains a database of political funding disclosures submitted by Donors, Parties, and Associated Entities. For Annual Returns, the database goes back to the 1998-99 reporting period. For Elections Returns, each federal election going back to 1996 is covered. The AEC site allows you to download data in csv/xls format, but only search... more »
There is dataset for ACT and Gold Coast available, but would be great to have dataset including all public BBQ sites across all states (or alternatively one dataset per state).
