Background: eVoting Technology

After evaluating various platforms, the government finally decided to adopt a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) for its future IT infrastructure. They were impressed with your Template based, Reference Architecture approach set out in your Task 1 Report and have accepted your recommendations regarding:

         Computing and storage infrastructure design,

         Application / service integration, and

         Information integration.

However, they would like to gain a deeper understanding of the technologies behind your recommendation and have asked for a small specific demonstration of these technologies along with a brief explanation of the concepts and principles of how it works.

Specifically, they have asked you to provide a demonstration web page in which the user will input a service and a post code. Upon clicking a button, a cluster map of offices, based on the services they offer and location, will be displayed to the user.

Assignment Tasks

This assignment consists of two deliverables, being: demonstration code 75%, and a report 25%. All code relating to this assignment should be contained within a folder named:
Task 2
– Your Name – Student Number, the folder is then to be zipped and uploaded to blackboard. The report must be uploaded separately.

Important Note: For ease of demonstration, your code must be self-contained. In addition to using Standards based HTML and Python, PETL, Bottle and Parser are the only additional frameworks you should need. If you use others they must be provided and not require installation.

Demonstration Code

To demonstrate your code, you have been provided with four data sources compiled with fictitious sample data. These are:

         “Offices.csv” contains the information about the government offices,

         “Office_Locations.xml” contains the location coordinates for each office

         “Services.xml” contains a list of government office services

         “Office_Services.csv” contains a list of offices and the services they offer

Task 1 - Data integration demo.

You are to submit a python script named “”.

Your script should firstly clean the data then merge it into one CSV file named “Office_Service_Locations. csv”.

Task 1.1 Data Cleansing (10 marks)

Clean data in the phone number field from “Offices.csv” to ensure all phone numbers are in the same format: +international code regional code phone number. That is all phone numbers should have the international code for Australia “+61”, followed by a space, followed by the regional code, followed by a space, followed by the first 4 digits of the local phone number, followed by a space, followed by the last 4 digits of the local phone number. For example, the Brisbane office should be formatted to: +61 7 3672 8709

Whilst regional codes do not always adhere to state boundaries, you may apply the
following regional codes for each state:
NSW = 2
VIC = 3
QLD = 7
SA = 9

Task 1.2 Data Merge (15 marks)

Merge the data from the four data sources into “Office_Service_Locations.csv” with the following fields (attributes):

       Office Services ID - a unique field identifying each record from Office_Services

        Office ID - a foreign key linking to Services from Office_Services

        Service - the Service Name from Services

        Office ID - a foreign key linking to offices and locations

        Office – the “Contact Name” from offices

        Suburb - the “Suburb” from offices

        Phone - the cleaned “Phone Number” data from offices

        Email – the “Email” address from offices

        Lat from Office_Locations

        Lon from Office_Locations

Task 2 – RESTful Web Service Demo

You are to submit a python script named “”.

For tasks 2.1 to 2.2 Your script should build a RESTful web service that supports a ‘get offices’ query from the client browser similar to “/get offices ? service id=x”. The server Web Service will return a JSON table with the following fields (attributes): Office, Suburb, Service, Phone, Email, Lat, Lon. Data is to come from the “Office_Service_Locations.csv” you built in task 1.2.

Task 2.1 Return offices for a service (5 marks)

The server will return a table of records (tuples) of offices offering the service ID passed to it.

Task 2.2 Return all unique offices (5 marks)

In the advent of a call to “get offices? Service id=0”, the server will return a distinct list of offices offering any service. That is a list of all offices listed once.

Task 2.3 List of Services (5 marks)

To populate your drop-down list in task 3.1 you will need to return a JSON table of all records from “services.csv” with the following fields (attributes): Service ID, Service. The server should respond to a “get services” request.

Task 2.4 Error Handling (5 marks)

Your code should handle any errors including incorrect requests.

Task 3 Mashup Demo

You are to submit a HTML file “office_map.html” and optionally a CSS file named “office_map.css”.

Task 3.1 Form Layout (8 marks)

You are to create an input form that accepts user input for a particular service. The input for the service should be a drop-down list with the first item of being “Any Service” with a value

= 0, remaining items should be created dynamically from a call to get services from task 2.3. The drop-down list should be accompanied with descriptors and a “Locate Offices” button.

Task 3.2 Google Map (10 marks)

Clicking the “Locate Offices” button the will trigger a “get offices” web service to retrieve a table of offices matching the service with attributes described in task 2. From this data you are to display a Google cluster map marking the position of the returned offices. The map should be centred and zoomed to an appropriate level to show all offices in Australia.

Task 3.3 Information Window Demographics (5 marks)

Upon clicking a marker bubble on the map, the user will be displayed an information window containing: Contact Name, Suburb, Phone Number, and a clickable email address.

Task 3.4 Information window email (5 marks)

Clicking an email address link in the information window should launch the user’s email application and automatically insert the subject line “Office Enquiry”.


You are required to write a report explaining the theory underlining the key concepts around the design and implementation of your demonstration system. You are also required to explain how to run your code. Finally, you are to include all code submitted in the appendices to the report, note that the code will not count towards the word count.

Your report should follow the following template:

Executive Summary

Table of Contents

Table of Figures (if needed)

Table of Tables (if needed)

1.0 Introduction

2.0 Key System Concepts

2.1 Data Matching

2.2 RESTFUL Web Services

2.3 AJAX

3.0 Demo Running Instructions

4.0 Conclusion



Report Format

Your report should be no less than 800 words and it would be best to be no longer than 1500 words.

The report must be formatted using the following guidelines:

         Paragraph text 12-point Calibri single line spacing

         Code Text 12-point Courier new single line spacing

         Headings Arial in an appropriate type size

         Margins 2.5cm on all sides

         Title Page is not to contain headers, footers, or page numbering

         Header is to display the Report Title (excluding the title page)

         Footer to display your name and the page number (excluding the title page)

   Title Page – Must not contain headers or footers. Include your name as the report’s author.

         Page numbering

o    Executive summary to the last page of Table of Figures / Table of Tables to use

roman numerals (i, ii, iii, iv)

o    Introduction and onwards to use conventional numerals (1, 2, 3, 4) starting at page 1 from the introduction

       The report is to be created as a single Microsoft Word document (version 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, or Office 365). No other format is acceptable and doing so will result in the deduction of marks.

   The report must use the built-in features of Microsoft Word to create page numbers, section numbers, citations, cross referencing of sections, figures and tables, table of contents, table of figures, table of tables, and bibliography.

Please follow the conventions detailed in:

Summers, J. & Smith, B., 2014, Communication Skills Handbook, 4th Ed, Wiley, Australia.


References should follow the Harvard method of referencing. Note that ALL references should be from journal articles, conference papers, technical papers or a recognized expert in the field. DO NOT use Wikipedia as a reference. The use of unqualified references will result in the deduction of marks.
