Geocoded liquor licenses
The dataset "Victorian liquor licenses by location" (https://www.data.vic.gov.au/data/dataset/victorian-liquor-licences-by-location/resource/900aadec-0126-45b0-bcf8-b88a76dea745) doesn't contain geocoded (latitude and longitude) addresses. This makes it unsuitable for any location based applications, such as maps, location-aware apps, or spatial research.
Two real use cases:
- an app that lets you find nearby drinking establishments
- research linking locations of drinking establishments with various social harms such as violence, alcoholism etc. I've helped Ass. Prof Craig Fry (https://www.vu.edu.au/contact-us/craig-fry) on this topic.
