Join us this Saturday and collaborate with us to improve an app that promotes green spaces in Metro Boston:
The goal of this mapping application is to help residents discover and explore green spaces and activities in their neighborhoods they didn’t know about. The project was bootstrapped during Boston's Hack Day Challenge, a 48 hour Hackathon. We're going to help get the app ready for prime time.
This is an opportunity for anybody interested in green spaces to unleash their can-do spirit and turn public open space data into a user friendly public service.
On this Saturday we will…
… do some usability testing
… write some code
… tweak some designs
… take and curate some photos
… or do whatever it takes to make the application better
We’re preparing this version for the Metro Boston area, but if you’re interested in deploying the app in your city or town, please stop by and see how you could use it in your community.
Thanks to Continuum for sponsoring venue, infrastructure, and snacks throughout the day.
