Where are the Dogs in Brisbane?

The Brisbane City Council has an Open Data website, which hosts a wide variety of open source data, freely available for download. I’ve created a small self contained app that collates and visualises the ‘Animal Permits’ csv. I’ve created 2 basic visualisations using Rshiny and Plotly, showing the top 15 data points.

The interactive components are hosted on https://www.shinyapps.io/ for free.

Next step would be to assign each suburb a latitude and longitude coordinate, and plot the resulting density of a specific breed on a map using leaflet.

You can access the raw data from the BCC open data website here and the source code for this app here. animal_permits.rds is a clean version of the data that is used by the app, while animal_permits_july_2021.csv is the raw data.
