Build real-time ‘Living Community Maps’ of community experience – so we can see where action is need

London’s new ‘Waterway Treasure Map’ http://www.thames21.org.uk/treasure/default.php – though quite basic – has recently shown the feasibility of people marking problem issues – and much else – on a map, followed up by local activity (in their case, regeneration of the banks of various waterways in London).

Though the most advanced such maps – using ‘softGIS’ technology, and high response rates – seem to be getting done in Finland (eg Helsinki Happiness Map etc).

I outline the ‘Living Community Maps’ idea here: http://bit.ly/geXBTR – and talk about some of the similar ideas that are out there.
I'd appreciate your feedback :-)
