Mapping Community Data

CivicSpace has some amazing capabilities. A group can take virtually any data and create multiple views like lists and maps. Work with crime statistics, data about local schools, abandoned houses, whatever data you need to create social change.

Zack demonstrates community data mapping in Drupal 4.7 (the CivicSpace upgrade to 4.7 is coming).

A community can manage data easily and put it into reports, maps and other formats at the touch of a few buttons. All with free and open source technology. Pretty powerful stuff.

Heck, there is even some development code that allows you to use CiviCRM as a data source rather than a csv file.
