As can be seen in some of the earlier posts, it was an original intention of this blog to report on the “state of the streets” in Grand Forks and East Grand Forks. In order to get more people involved in this process, we’ve set up a crowdmap:
Anyone can use this map to report both the positive and negative features of our transportation system. You do not need an account, and you can even submit reports from your Android phone, iOS device, or Twitter (Twitter functionality has not been completely tested).
Reports are moderated for now; depending on how many people contribute moderation may be turned off in the future. One important note is that when you are submitting a location from the website, you should either 1) first click “Clear Map” before marking a point; this removes a point that is automatically added to the map or 2) drag the point on the map to the location you wish to mark.
Please check it out, play around, and let us know what you think!
