Our application provides a platform for community consultation about public facilities and points of interest. It provides data on existing infrastructure and allows users to create additional observations. bVocal also allows users to engage in Geo-location specific dialogue to promote community and government involvement and solutions.
We used local council data to present a visualisation on the location of local council infrastructure. bVocal allows for community input and consultation on these locations as well as the ability to add new questions, comments and hazards to the dataset. bVocal is an evolving dataset that continues to grow with it's community. bVocal helps governments make decisions by providing a mechanism to engage with the community and understand their needs.
