Fine app trial

Data published

The Victorian government has released more than 1000 datasets to the public at data.vic.gov.au. It includes geospatial datasets, such as flood plains, water catchment and local government areas, addresses, coastal areas, airports and state boundaries, and electoral and urban growth.

Genevieve Bell, Intel's Australian resident anthropologist, said humans are the ultimate mobile platform because mobile technology development has been, and will continue to be, built "to extend our bodies and physical reach, augment our deficiencies and increase our capacity to get things done".
