OrangeCone is a mobile- and web-application that will allow a Citizen to report a public-sector issue or need by taking a picture of it, identifying the issue type, and writing comments.
This data will be visible to all users in that geographic location to view for free in a Newsfeed and Map-based portion of the application, and maintain complete awareness of their public spaces via a location-appropriate TweetDeck of public and governmental sources.
Subscribing Users (such as municipalities, metro systems, or utilities) can view these issues, and collaborate on solutions based upon their User Settings. Subscribers may also utilize data analysis tools for trends, correlations, and predictions.
1. ORANGECONE IS ONE APP FOR EVERY PUBLIC SPACE. No more having one app for every city you encounter.
2. NO DATA SILOS: We take data out of silos and put it into one big pool. This allows one reported issue data point to be useful across multiple governmental levels – from local, to state and federal.
3. STANDARDIZED DATA COLLECTION AND REPORTING: this allows ease of reporting issues in G2G, and ease of interpretation of data trends.
4. ORANGECONE GIVES CITIZENS A VOICE ABOUT THEIR PUBLIC SPACES, eliminating the confusion of who is responsible for what spaces and creating a conversation about where we live, and how to improve it.
OrangeCone is a web and mobile application with a functional MVP. The mobile app will be for free use by any US Citizen (and eventually Global citizen), enabling anyone to report non-emergency public-sector issues to appropriate governmental and other authorities.
Free users will be able to (1) report issues of concern in the local area, and (2) view the issues reported in their local area in a map and newsfeed for free.
Practically, a Citizen will be able to (1) take a picture of an identified public sector issue, (2) select the issue type from a drop down menu ("Streets and Sidewalks", "Environmental", etc.), and (3) add optional comments if they would like.
Subscribing Users, such as local government agencies, will be able to (1) view data in a map and newsfeed, as well as (2) manage issue fulfillment via an issue management system, and (3) view real-time issue management and trend analysis with data analytics / business intelligence tools, in order to enable communication, collaboration, data sharing, and more rapid public space issue resolution.more
