Crowd Sourcing and Citizen Engagement
As GIS professionals we have to stay on top of industry trends and demands from citizens. Citizens and their organizations are demanding transparency and applications which allow citizen engagement and interactivity. This session will discuss some of the latest trends in the industry and showcase some of the latest tools. GIS centric tools for citizen engagement will be detailed to include 311 and Public Safety citizen engagement. These tools elevate a GIS program from the back room to the centerpiece of a government’s citizen outreach.
