About


This project was created during the weekend of 3 July - 5 July 2015 as part of Perth GovHack 2015. The official project page on the national GovHack website shows the details required for submission to the national GovHack 2015 awards.

Datagum has won the following award:
  • Pawsey Supercomputing Centre Big & Complex Data Prize (runner-up) for the hack that best uses or combines large and complex data sets.
The data used in this presentation is stored in a distributed database engine that uses a triple-store to normalise data across all data-sets. We've broken down the silos that often exist, by making this data accessible and searchable and usable in raw form to anyone who hits the appropriate query, think HTTP for data-bases.

This project is a prototype, it uses a small data-set, was created in a weekend and revolutionizes the way research is conducted.
