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. When the organisation-graph changes, who has reasponsability for the ...more »

All GIS data to be made available as WFS/WMS

All data hosted by data.gov.au which contains spatial/GIS information should be made available through the data.gov.au geoserver. This will allow the data to be programmatically accessed and consumed via web applications instead of requiring manual download and processing of data.

Bulk suggestions for improving data.gov.au

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 »

Download links on data sets

Each dataset in data.gov.au has an "Explore" button with "Preview" and "download" functions. The Download function, however, usually does not download a file but instead loads the file in my web browser. This occurs with all CSV and other text files. To get a file download I have to click on "Explore" then without moving the mouse fright-click on "Download" which is somewhat tricky for me. Can the download function ...more »

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

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

filter organisations by jurisdiction

I found it difficult to find the organisation I was looking for, because it changed names again (it seems to do this every couple of years or so, like so many other government departments).

 

It would have been easier if I could filter my organisation search by jurisdiction (e.g. Federal Government).
