Take a look at this interesting map we made on Mappler in collaboration with Planning Communities! The map is full of GIS layers that you can toggle to show various information such as crime, food, recreation, transit, and URISA health data in DC. The picture below shows URISA data marking sidewalks, intersections, homeless locations, and garbage. Visit the map to view all the data ! nj.mapplerx.com/map/urisahealth
After all of this bad weather we have had here in New Jersey, the roads are a mess with potholes. To help drivers along their route, this map will point out all the pothole hazards on the road, with the help of the public. PotholeMapping.com is a grassroots community mapping initiative by Justin E. Auciello(@auciello) and Dr. Wansoo Im. Anyone can contribute pothole location information from an Apple or Android device using the site, or from your computer. Just login under one-time guest, select Add Data, distinguish the pothole’s location by either clicking my location or find address, then fill in the information about the pothole in each category that has an asterisk. Additional comments and your name can also be added, and the time and date of your data will automatically be determined by Mappler. Once you are done adding in all of the information click submit, and your data point will appear on the map!
Visit the site and add any potholes that you see. Community participation leads to community awareness !
