I received an email recently to engage with Planning NSW's latest community engagement initiative. I was bracing myself for some hideous online survey with hundreds of questions. So was pretty thrilled to see this interactive map with drag and drop pins to let the department know:
I love the language choice of these 2 simple options. Don't be negative and just hating on things. Give some real feedback and think about how you can solve a problem (change).
Social Pin Point lets you easily collect community opinion with an interactive map that lets users drop a pin with comments which are searchable and locate-able.
Forget the post-it notes and gigantic maps at your next community engagement meeting. Just bring a few laptops or iPads and get users to zoom in on the virtual map and give instant comments for change or kudos. See what others are saying about the area and use the "likes" and "dislikes" icon to agree or disagree with other comments.
