This project was developed in October 2014 for the National Centre for Socioeconomic Modelling (NATSEM) and the Australian Workplace Innovation and Social Research Centre (WiSER).
NATSEM provided a set of research data forecasting the annual impact the Australian Federal Budget (2014-2015) would have on families by 2017-2018, grouped by Federal Electorate.
The aim of this project was to provide an interactive map, where visitors could locate their electorate and view the forecasted impact on their financial situation.
A link to the map was included in stories published by a variety of local and national media outlets, and accessed by over 5,000 unique visitors in the following 48 hours:
- Sydney Morning Herald | Follow-up Article
- ABC News
- The Age
- The Guardian
- The Canberra Times
This project makes use of the following technologies:
- Geospatial data provided by the Australian Electoral Commission was converted into KML for use in Google Maps.
