Smart Cities: An Interactive Multi-Media and Mapping Platform

Jamie Lundine and a team from Spatial Collective in Kenya will promote communication between citizens, service providers, local government, and members of the international community, to help improve living conditions in developing countries. They will create an interactive community platform accessible via SMS for citizens to present local development challenges, such as water supply shortages, and suggest possible solutions. Service providers and potential donors can then use the multi-media platform to identify these needs, and develop and evaluate solutions. The platform will be pilot tested in Nairobi, Kenya.
