Over the course of the last 10 weeks we have been creating prototypes to help us explore the user needs and the technical feasibility of a land and property tax platform.
We have used prototypes to test the platform we are creating, the test assunmptions we’ve made about the problem space the platform will exist in and to demonstrate what could be possible if a land and property tax platform existed for Wales.
Prototype 1: Find your local authority
Prototype 2: Provide a location journey
Prototype 3: Explore land and property data
Prototype 4: Search land and property data by area
Prototype 5: Tell me about a location
Prototype 6: LTT statistics by postcode
Prototype 7: Ways to construct areas
Protoype kit - The code for all the prototypes.
WRA frontend - A package of reusable frontend code.
Land and property platform - The code for the proof-of-concept platform
Each week we share a short update on what we’re learning, along with links to things we think are interesting or relevant.
- The technical architecture
- Policy challenges
- Every day's a school day – lessons learned from the land and property platform
- Why are inaccuracies creeping into addresses on the Land Transaction Tax return?
- How a map can paint a bigger picture
- Summarising the Proof of Concept
- What we learned about users
- How we used weeknotes
- What we've learned about working in the open
- What do we mean by a data platform?
We built a number of prototypes to test our assumptions, platform capability and ideas.
