Check out CitySourced, a new mobile citizen reporting app that lets cities know what residents are coming across that need repair, attention, cleaning, etc. It uses your smartphone’s camera and GPS to record images and data about graffiti, potholes, broken benches and other elements that require the city’s attention. When you take a photo, you fill out a short questionnaire to let the city know about the issue. Some of the issues are a little ambitious (“This intersection needs a left turn lane”) while others are more addressable (traffic light burnt out). You can follow the status of your submission on the website. I am going to try and submit one a day. Download it and try for yourself.
One thought on “CitySourced”
Nice idea. I wonder what else you could outsource to helpful folks with smart phones?
