** Directly update data via web form

** Indirectly update data by synchronising previously-exported data; for example: http://data.gov.au/ data might have been submitted to http://www.openstreetmap.org/; when that data is updated on http://www.openstreetmap.org/, those changes could be synchronised back into http://data.gov.au/

Revision as of 14:30, 7 January 2014

Ingress is a game by niantic (a subsidiary of google) that is a location based capture the flag style game. The game is now open to the public and is available as a free android app see [ingress.com] for more information.

I would like to organise a lunch meetup for players from both sides to chat. Most of the uni is a lvl 7 farm so go out there and play.
