Rebuild Your Community

Rebuild your community is not merely a web map but an integrated system allowing people living in certain cities to report problems (ex. potholes, illegal posters, graffiti etc.) to the local authorities to implement a work order. This platform is integrated with Toronto’s Open311 API, a standard for communicating between mobile apps and the city on work orders. The map component allows users to visualize where problems are currently (red) and where they have been resolved (green). By clicking on a point, an information bubble pops up, and more details can be seen. Interestingly, you are given the local council member’s contact information beside the number of days it has taken to resolve the problem. The map was created using Google Maps API.
