Ever wondered if there is correlation between Australian outbound air traffic and the unemployment rate? How about the maximum temperature in Adelaide and the number of dial up internet subscribers? We created our tool Time Capsule in hopes that we could help the general public answer these pressing questions.
Time Capsule lets you visualise trends in 44 metrics over the last 30 years, sourced from 15 government data sets (and growing!).
