The idea behind the app is to provide the user a sense of Brisbane around them and to give them guided access to places of interest. Using the Windows Phones 7 GPS all data sets are presented to the user presorted based on the distance of the user to the place of interest. Each data set that contains location information provides a small map that shows their location and the place of interest with the added ability of the user to seek â€œturn by turnâ€ navigation option at the tap of a button. The directions can be optimized for driving or walking. Most data sets allow the user to save Favorites and quickly navigate to them from wherever they are.
We have been careful to show â€œAccessibilityâ€ as it relates to all data sets and in addition have dedicated a page that allows a user to look up all know accessibility information and rating for a full range of Brisbane services e.g. Business, Education, Shopping, Community, transportation and much more. We think this will help someone with accessibility needs make informed decisions before accessing Brisbane services or locations etc.
This app is the perfect companion for anyone wanting to explore Brisbane Australia. It uses an extensive Brisbane data set provided data.gov.au.
