New app tells you where QLD speed cameras are hidden

AN INTERACTIVE website that displays Queensland's road crash data or a mobile phone app telling you when to book a driving test could win $5000 from the state government.

A website featuring the location of web-based traffic cameras could also be rewarded under the state government's Premier's Awards for Open Data.

As dry as this seems, there is some interesting data released each month on the state government's Open Data website.

Open Data includes a large amount of information gathered by the 20 government departments and released monthly, quarterly or annually.

Premier Campbell Newman wants data crunchers, web designers and smartphone app designers to see what they can come up in three categories: public transport, improving service and developing the state's future.
