Community Maps - Past, Present, and Future Developments

A session at Citizen Cyberscience Summit 2014

Friday 21st February, 2014

2:00pm to 3:00pm (GMT)

Community Maps, developed by Mapping for Change and UCL, is a mapping platform that allows many to map what interests them and be a part of the decision making process. From mapping dog fouling incidences in Poland to identifying grass roots climate action initiatives in the United Kingdom, Community Maps is helping people make a difference in their local areas. After 7 years of running on the same code base, it was decided that the platform needed to be rebuilt from the ground up, utilising current technologies, to ensure its robustness and continued longevity. This talk, given by two of Community Maps’ developers, will discuss the past, present and hopeful future development efforts of the platform and want to hear from potential end users, project partners, and developers (of all skill ranges) as to what you would want to see the new platform do.
