Our group SWSP contains six Canberra Grammar School students, who have spent the past several years studying Information Technology. We all attend Code Cadets which has provided us with the skills necessary to complete GovHack 2017.
‘Canberra Repair’ is an ios application created by SWSP in order to report issues involving public lighting throughout Canberra. One of the biggest problems challenging people’s perceived safety throughout Canberra is the amount of light in its public places, or lack thereof. From data collected by the ACT Government the amount of light in an area may not be related to its actual safety. Regardless of this, we want Canberra to be a place where everyone can feel safe. Our mission is to make an application that allows people either from or visiting Canberra to report an issue with public light fixtures.
