Liveability in numbers.
Habistasis allows both individuals and policymakers alike to calculate liveability scores for postcode regions, with a breakdown on which stats contribute positive or negatively to an area's score, and its overall liveability. This insight allows for and promotes a more targeted and strategic plans, both individual and policy-level, to improve liveability in areas which need it most.
Habistasis additionally provides recommendations for government rebates, subsidies, and other schemes to individuals in low-liveability areas.

We started to see how to best approach the problem - we looked at datasets from transport, housing, bonds, FuelCheck to see how we could make sense of it
We spent time acquiring, processing, and collating data for analysis with automated tools and scripting to create a consistent format, "indexed" by postcode.
We started with a mockup of what the application should look like, with assets and a landing page, as well as the foundations for a scoring algorithm, that assigns scores to postcodes based on their average fuel prices, rental prices, and vehicle ownership.
Once we had a model for the scoring system, using Python (Flask) and React, we built an MVP: a web application with Python and React, where the user can enter their postcode, and the application calculates a liveability score for them.
