Map-Happy Web Applications - no coding required

  • LocalData -- created by DUSP's very own Alicia Rouault. Designed for collecting place-based surveys. This would help collect your data, but you would need your own interface to display it.

Map-Happy Web Applications

  • Ushahidi -- a PHP-based crowd-mapping framework. Can use SMS as input.
  • Shareabouts -- a crowd-mapping framework creatd by OpenPlans (DUSP alums!)
  • GeoDjango -- a powerful GIS python framework packaged within a python web application framework.
