Open Data Community Showcase

There are many different use cases for our open data, including some very cool applications created by our community, so we’ve decided to share them in a regular blog post! Our first edition features everything from a Smart TV app to a NSW Transport COVID-19 Impact Dashboard and research on the impact of fuel prices on traffic flows and use of public transport. Cool, right?

Wave hello to new trials from the Waverley Transport Innovation Challenge!

Transport for NSW (TfNSW) holds several innovation challenges, which are open to the public throughout the year, in order to find innovative solutions for real world customer problems. Our innovation challenges vary from helping boaters navigate safely on our waterways, to digitising the paper based log book for learner drivers, or helping keep our clearways stay clear. Ideas and solutions come from a variety of industries and backgrounds, bringing new perspectives to the table.

Which governments do Open Data well?

In the last decade, we have seen open data policies geared at making open data transparent, accessible and available to the public. Today, we are seeing improved access to open data across the globe, giving organisations opportunities to innovate and solve problems. We can track our public transport in real time, find out which car park has available spots, and know more about our greenhouse gas emissions.
