Evomap — is a visualized offline environment providing socially significant information on various events and occurrences within a municipal unit.
Implemented to numerous communities throughout Russia, Evomap was recognized as an irreplaceable tool that simply makes people feel that they are heard as their needs and interests are effectively managed.Evomap is suitable for any offline environment, where the provision of information is geocoded. This could include parks, recreational areas, or road junctions. Evomap may also be integrated with other crowdsourcing projects.
The first version of Evomap was released in 2012 for the Siberian region. With a city population of just 40,000 people, the new service rapidly obtained recognition. During the first month of Evomap implementation there were more than 300 issues reported on the map. The majority of requests were related to the overall improvement of recreational areas, playgrounds, roads and sidewalks.
Thanks to Evomap, the authorities were ableto get some additional awareness on city problem areas from the local resident point of view. As a result, the city authorities considered all of the requests and adjusted the urban environment development plan accordingly. The experiment was recognized by the Administration of the Siberian region as successful.
Evomap uses advanced mapping technology to create unique area maps in high detail.
OpenStreetMap is an open source map that provides ready-made
maps containing the most up to date information from all over the world.
In addition, there is an option for map stylization and large format printing.
