the app Market Sure sources data from open maps so that people can look at where their food is sourced in comparison to their location. They can find out where their food comes from and if it is ethically sourced and they can make their own decisions on what they purchase, they will be able o support their decisions by analyzing the data given by farmers.
The users of this app will be able to make educated decisions based on the information that we give them.
the first data set that we have is based on livestock and Meat Australia, this includes data from abattoirs, major slaughter establishments and small country butchers. This can be helpful for people to see how their meat consumption has affected the state and international tolls for the month.
the second data set that we used is called Generalized agricultural land use of Western Australia (DPIRD-003) and this shows us what percentage of land is used for each type of livestock and crops this will be useful for if you want to know how many hectares of land are used for each group.
the third dataset that we have found is to do with unemployment rate during covid-19, The farming industry also took a big hit they lost a lot of seasonal workers because of restricted travel there were no tourists to do the work now that the biggest wave of covid is over we are starting to go back to normal (in some places)people are trying to find work and the farming industry is trying to find workers in our app the farmers will be able to put out notices that they need workers and people can go and help.
the last data set that I have is to find out how many dairy cows are in their region so that they can know if there is a depletion in dairy cow numbers over the course of the month or year.
