Best Christchurch Smart City Data Hack (Christchurch City Council)

How can we visualise the interaction between the built and natural environments of Christchurch, making the invisible visible. Christchurch City Council has been piloting a Smart City project recently capturing C02 levels, air temperature, luminosity, barometric pressure and noise from around the city and seeks to make it useful and engaging for citizens.

Best Christchurch Transport Data Hack (Canterbury Transport Operations Centre)

How can we give personalised information for a customer’s journey that makes their trip predictable, enjoyable and interesting?

Best data hack involving environmental data (Environment Canterbury)

How can we show environmental data in a new light and help the citizen understand the state of the environment around them. How can data can help influence their community to make smarter decisions in planning.

Best Engagement Data Hack (Christchurch City Council)

How can we get people on board with cycleways in this Christchurch. We know, from the research, that people want a greener city that is more pedestrian and cycle-friendly. And we know people are generally supportive of cycle routes until that cycle route impacts on their trees, or their parking, or the way they access their property or business. So how do we get people excited about cycling in this city, so that when the a cycle route comes past their house they can see the bigger picture of what they are gaining, not what they’re losing.

Best University of Canterbury data hack (UC College of Business and Law and UC College of Engineering)

How do we better plan our open days to manage both student and visitor needs in a useful and engaging way.

How does CCC prioritise which buildings to assess after an earthquake based on the likelihood of damage and liquefaction occurring? (Christchurch City Council)

Christchurch rebuilding and more accurate and useful ways to identify damage across city assets and buildings quickly and easily.

How we can support people to get healthcare from the right provider (Canterbury District Health Board)

The increasing number of people attending the Emergency Department (ED) is not evenly distributed across the population with young adult attendance growing more quickly than other age groups. Young adults are less likely to need treatment quickly or to be admitted to hospital for further care. Despite this, when most people are asked they indicate they thought ED is the appropriate place for them to receive care.

Most promising Christchurch student (University of Canterbury Centre for Entrepreneurship)

There will be up to 2 UC Centre for Entrepreneurship Summer Scholarships on offer for any Christchurch tertiary student from University of Canterbury, Area or Lincoln University, participating in GovHack Christchurch. Each scholarship is worth $5,000 (tax free) and will be awarded to 2 most promising UC students who wish to continue their venture in a 10 week summer start-up programme.

The identity of Christchurch (Christchurch City Council)

How can we describe the identity of Christchurch in 2016? Our city and key icons have changed since the quakes and we wish to understand how the citizens of Christchurch perceive the identity of their city in 2015.
