Need to develop community-centric policy? Child-play, access the open data and understand flow of goods, infrastructure requirements and city activity to support your agenda.
Share-to is a mobile-centric platform allowing people to share items with others. Users begin by tapping on Share (+), which allows them to upload a photograph of their item, select its availability and a short description. People can choose to share publicly or with a select group of people they trust. Other people can browse through items on their mobile phones and reserve these items on demand. As they approach the geo-location of the item they are allowed to unlock it and use it until the lease is over. Locks are internet-enabled physical or electronic locks that allow management of things with ease. For example, a car might have a wheel lock, but a stereo might have an electronic lock.
Driven by data, share-to is data driven, bringing usage information back to its users. For example, items on the map are represented by emoticon-circles whose diameter represent how much items are reserved, and whose emotion how many people use the lease full time, giving a sense of review based on usage. People can also explore different types of usage maps, by lease, types of lease, or types of items to understand the beat of their neighbourhood. Share-to is committed to open data and will share its information with the public, allowing better planning and policy to take place.
Share-to's first iteration consists of a Ruby on Rails application that can be deployed in Heroku or BlueMix, its data is hosted by the UrbanOpus.net project and has been designed to be scalable.
