481 stolen vehicles in Wellington over last 6 months

Using information accessed via http://www.data.govt.nz/ I have determined that owning a vehicle in Wellington can be risky. I downloaded a CSV file, imported it to MySQL and retrieved the information via a SQL query embedded in PHP/XHTML. Cool, now I need to work out how the students can learn this sort of capability.

    Could be a good idea for students to do queries based upon regions to do what you have found out. What would be the risk of owning a car in Invercargill compared to Wellington. Also being able to graph the number of cars stolen based upon region. They will learn modifying queries based upon where region = “name”, also use count() SELECT type, i.e. COUNT(name) FROM products GROUP BY type;

    This sounds like an interesting lesson.
