Pilot implementation in Siberia, Russia

Yugra Interactive Map

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.
