CitySourced: Crowdsource Your Government
Distributed Knowledge, Tools

In the midst of an unstable global economy, governments are striving to accomplish more with fewer resources. Additionally, citizens are looking for governments to embrace the government 2.0 movement, encouraging increased communication, feedback, and transparency of allocated resources. It is a lofty goal, but one that we feel will increase the effectiveness of government while concurrently improving citizens' quality of life.

CitySourced is a real time mobile civic engagement platform; with our free mobile apps, we allow citizens to report non-emergency issues back to City Hall. By identifying these civic issues (public safety, quality of life, environmental issues, etc.) with a smartphone, citizens are able to snap a photo, shoot video or record audio and easily report issues directly to the city's appropriate department. In addition, our mobile reports provide additional data points about the problem, most specifically the GPS location. From these reports, the city can then respond directly to the user to keep citizens informed of all relevant progress.
