  • Goulburn Murray Streamway Gauge Levels

    Closed SUGGESTED 24 December 2016
    Goulburn Murray water provide a javascript interface to have a look at their water storage levels and streamway gauge flowrates and river levels here: This is not machine readable and precludes you from directly accessing any sites location. It would be nice to have the most recent readings as a simple, quick-updating CSV file, that allows for analysis and data manipulation.

  • DELWP Gauge river levels

    Review in progress SUGGESTED 24 December 2016
    DELWP own a large amount of Streamway water gauges around the state. While you can download past records of river levels from There is no way to have a look at current water levels. Especially not with a computer. The nicest way of presenting this would be a computer readable csv, that is updated hourly, (failing that, something similar to this: ""

  • Cancer clusters

    Closed SUGGESTED 12 December 2016
    Would be possible to gather skins cancers counts (incidents) by LGA in the state of Victoria. I was planning to put together some engaging GIS visuals to post on public domains (i.e. linkedin, facebook etc).

  • Population by post code

    Closed SUGGESTED 9 December 2016
    Each month the VEC republishes a "locality finder .xls" spreadsheet with the population in each post code. there older version are not stored. can the data be available by each month like the does via the federal government gazette. It would help local area population analysis at the suburb / post-code level

  • Residential Property Sales

    Escalated to Data Owner SUGGESTED 3 December 2016
    Transparency in the real estate market would be significantly improved if the actual sales were available from the government on at least a monthly basis with this data broken down by suburb and key property feature (i.e. number of bedrooms, land size, type of dwelling, etc) Currently, the monopoly on data access restricts end user use and visibility of sales statistics and properties on a per suburb basis to that which they either pay for through 3rd party data providers or real estate agents.

  • Victoria Water reservoirs and catchments

    Review in progress SUGGESTED 12 October 2016
    I'd like to get a map that shows Victoria/Melbourne's main water reservoirs and catchments. I see there is some data in Vicmap hydro and catchments. The problem with the catchments data is that it is non specific and spatially covers the entire state. It would be good to have a specific dataset for the water reservoir and associated catchments particularly. I believe melbourne water posts such a map already but the data is not accessible.

  • Vehicle registration details, such as vehicle type, make, model, year, VIN, colour, etc. should be made available to the public

    Escalated to Data Owner SUGGESTED 6 October 2016
    Vehicle registration details, such as vehicle type, make, model, year, VIN, colour, etc. should be made available to the public in dataset form. It is already possible to manually search for individual vehicle registrations on, but this web interface is designed for humans and is not useful for data analysis.
    Data owner:
  • Electricity distribution zones and substation catchment zones

    Review in progress SUGGESTED 25 September 2016
    Opening this dataset would allow 3rd party developers to build apps that route users to the appropriate distributors for their electricity infrastructure queries (cables on the ground, broken street lights, streamlined solar PV connection request, ...) by using GPS location instead of typing their entire address, an easy win for distributors and the public. The current closest service offered is an online address search and map (raster) on . This request is for the publication of the vector version of this dataset (any of GeoJSON, MapInfo TAB, ESRI shapefile). Also, the substation catchment zones would allow reconciliation with the required yearly release of zone substation data. At the moment, the zone substation data reports lack geographic context to be truly useful and cross-referenced with other geo-based datasets.
