the most comfortable place for their needs and discover the advantages of their district. On the other hand they can document a problem, for example, excessive noise levels and report them to the municipality. Equally with sensoric data, human uploaded information can be also accessed in order to help the public self-organise and create different activities in the neighborhood. Also people propose ideas for their area, which could be anything from a new kinder garden, to a weekend market or a building restoration.
After the project proposal citizens can vote for and against them using the application. This can make a connection between public and the government much more direct and more people will be represented. The ecological aspect can also be explored with this application as users can upload their recycling data to
the database and compete between neighborhoods, stimulating awareness in ecology. As a result the
most ecological districts can get grants from the city government to improve the infrastructure.
