    11. 11. Who are we ? Public Transport Victoria (PTV) is a statutory authority that acts as a system authority for all public transport and an advocate for public transport users. PTV is a single contact point for customers wanting information on public transport services, fares, tickets and initiatives. Leading our public transport network – for all Victorians today and tomorrow.
    12. 12. Key datasets
    13. 13. Key datasets (Timetable API) NextDeparting/All Run/ForRun Search/Search Navigation/StopsForLine Search/NearMe Map/All HealthCheck/All This API returns all departure times from a stop for a specific line and in a specific direction. The Stopping Pattern API returns all the times for stops that a particular vehicle will stop at on a specific service run (that is, specific line, direction and point in time). The Search API returns all stops and lines that include the search term. The Stops on a Line / Route API returns all the stops along a specific line. Stops Nearby returns the stops nearest to a specified coordinate. (30) This API returns a list of transport points of interest (POIs) in a region described by coordinates. POIs can be any or all of stations, stops or myki ticket outlets. A check on the timely availability, connectivity and reachability of the services that deliver security, caching and data to web clients API user registration To access the PTV Timetable API, API users must register for a security key and developer ID. Both are needed to calculate the signature which is passed with every API request. Users must send an email to with the words “PTV Timetable API – request for key” in the subject line. PTV will then send them an email with the security key and developer ID. BeforeGovtHack-July11th

    26. 26. Overview • VicRoads supports Victoria’s liveability and economic prosperity by planning, developing and managing the arterial road network and delivering registration and licensing services. • Our key role is to help provide Victorians with safe and easy connections to the people and places that matter most to them. – 22,000 kilometres of road – 3,133 bridges – 22 million transactions per year – 3.7 million licensed drivers – 4.9 million registered vehicles – 3,000 staff – 50 offices
    27. 27. Key Objectives • Operate and maintain the road system to help our customers travel easily and reliably • Develop the road system to improve connections between places that are important to our customers • Improve road safety • Make the road system more environmentally sustainable.
    28. 28. Challenges • Population growth • Freight • Low carbon transport operations • Resilient infrastructure • Asset management • Complex information management

    42. 42. GovHack Meet up Tuesday 24 June 2014 Paul Corkill Manager Waterway User Safety
    43. 43. Transport Safety Victoria – Who are we? • TSV is the government regulator for recreational and commercial boating activity in Victoria (we also regulate bus and rail transport) • We licence users, register boats and make rules that apply to all boaters on Victorian Waters (eg. Speed limits and special use zones) • TSV is the waterway manager for 12 waterways, including most of the coast and state significant navigational lights • Oversees 59 independent waterway managers across the state
    44. 44. Transport Safety Victoria – Who goes boating?
    45. 45. Rules of the Road • Waterway rules tell boaters how fast you can go. • Zones tell you what types of activities can happen and where, eg. waterski areas, sailboard only and no boating zones • Currently communicated through antiquated, wordy description of zones on our website • Rules are poorly understood and compliance is low
    46. 46. • Project to comprehensively map Victoria’s boating zones is nearing completion. • 175 major boating waterways are being mapped • Is used internally, not available publically • All states of Australia have similar challenges, none have published data • Opportunity now to improve understanding of boating rules by graphically representing rules and zones Transport Safety Victoria - Data mapping

    50. 50. Data: Building Permit Activity VBA participation in GovHack 2014
    51. 51. The Victorian Building Authority • independent statutory authority • regulating: –building industry –plumbing industry
    52. 52. Why does the VBA exist ensure the safety, livability and sustainability of the built environment
    53. 53. Data: Building Permit Activity • regulated building work is reported to the Victorian Building Authority • a record of each building permit issued in Victoria since 2008
    54. 54. So what’s in a building permit record Oodles of data: •over 40 pieces of information per record •details of what was built (or demolished) •how much it cost •where it was built •building purpose •levy paid •when it was built •time series per year from July 2008
    55. 55. Why is Building Permit Activity important • economic indicator • building industry trends • planning trends • collection of building permit Levy for VBA
    56. 56. Who cares about the data • private sector – building companies – economic forecasting agencies • industry bodies – Master Builders Association – Housing Industry Australia • municipal councils • other government agencies
    57. 57. What’s the format XLSB format: •small file sizes •Excel ease of use •convertibility •internal technical hurdles

    60. 60. National Map Overview Bill Simpson-Young, NICTA 24 June 2014 (Initiative of Commonwealth Department of Communications, NICTA and Geoscience Australia)
    61. 61. Map browser code and data mgmt Map browser code and data mgmt Govt open data directory Govt open data directory Vision: An open national map 65 Web browser … Value-add commercial and community services (analytics, visualisations, mashups) Map imagery Map imagery Tile map server Elevation data Elevation data Terrain server C/wealth govt agency authoritative data services InternetInternet Tablet Other data and services Other data and services ABS data ABS data GA data GA data BoM data BoM data … State govt authoritative data services WA data WA data QLD data QLD data State data State data …
    62. 62. 10 design goals for an open national map1. Authoritative data services – Eg Administrative boundaries, place names 1. Multi-jurisdiction – Live data services for commonwealth, states, local government 1. Multi-custodian – Live data services from different agencies - GA, ABS, BoM, state agencies 1. Multi-vendor (at back end) – ESRI’s ArcGIS, Google Maps Engine, open source software (eg Geoserver) 1. Multi-format – OGC-compliant data services, KML, GeoJSON, CSV, etc 1. Open framework – All data sets and services available for other compatible front-ends 1. Open source – Open source front-end; back-end data services can use open source 1. Easy access to the data set/service itself from the National Map UI – Map provides visualisation but all data can be directly accessed too 1. Features not available in most current globes – Timeline, subsurface, etc 1. Platform for commercial, community and agency innovation – Interfaces to support value-add services (eg analytics, visualisation, sharing, printing) 66
    63. 63.

    68. 68. How to use National Map at Govhack 1. Use NM to see and get available data sets and services 2. Create own data services (eg WMS data services using other NM data services) for use with NM 3. Create own data services collection file that points to your data services 4. Contribute to the National Map code base (bug fixes, features) 5. Build a value-add back-end service for NM 6. Build a value-add front-end service (no coding needed) 7. Write your own code that uses the NM data services 8. Fork the code and make your own version 72
