Shareabouts is a mapping application for crowdsourced info gathering.
Shareabouts is an online mapping tool to gather crowdsourced public input in a social and engaging process. Using Shareabouts, people can drop a pin on a map to provide ideas, suggestions, and comments for planning and design issues. And as a mobile-friendly application, Shareabouts makes it easy to add input on the go.
It's helpful, but not required, to know about the architecture of Shareabouts before starting.
This will deploy a fully-functional Shareabouts map and datastore to your account on Heroku (an easy-to-manage hosting service). Hosting this way will cost $50-100 monthly. Here's the process.
Alternatively, you may want to use a different hosting service and set up the components of Shareabouts manually.
All of our documentation is is our
docdirectory. Use it to learn more about: * the architecture * local setup * testing the source * interface configuration * custom themes * deploying with the Heroku button and in other ways * upgrading from an older version * getting your data once you have a map running
