Making the Qld NAPLAN scores available as open data for mapping using Google earth would enable increased use of the dataset by services such as public libraries which could use it to inform their practices and partnerships with other agencies towards shared goals of learning and literacy.
Similar to the RSS feed available for ACT. It would be great to see the same Magistrates/Supreme court data available for other states.
The National Health Services Directory is a federally funded project which has gathered all locations, hours and serivces for doctors, hospitals and pharmacies across Australia.
This data at the moment is only available as a licensed API. It would benefit greatly from being both an open API and also from having regular dumps of all data to data.gov.au.
Alphanumeric road classification schemes are used to indicate the importance of roads. I would like to see this classification available to use on the vector road data sets. eg 1:10M, 1:250K topo sets etc
MYEFO is the Mid Year Economic & Fiscal Outcome which lists all the policy changes affecting spending that occur between when the budget is handed down in May and whenever the MYEFO is delivered (usually Nov but can be delayed). eg http://budget.gov.au/2013-14/content/myefo/html/ Wasn't sure if I was supposed to open a new request for the MYEFO data. To add MYEFO data to existing budget data sets it needs to be broken ...more »
Beach Access and numbers for the Noosa Shire Council area
Can the locations of traffic blackspots from the blackspots programme across Australia please be released as open data.
Expose the http://www.smartraveller.gov.au/ risk ratings via an API so it can be mashed up in travel apps

Similar to what has already been done with Victorian Public Libraries
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.
