Your work will build upon the findings from a three-part community workshop led by Oakland’s Resilience Initiative and our partners – New York-based Rebuild by Design, Resident-led West Oakland Environmental Indicators Project, and White House-recognized Streetwyze.
Level 1: Mobile-compatible website with entry, browse and search functionality
- Mobile-first entry mechanism for community-level participants who may not have access to a laptop.
- Community focus groups to test and build entry form.
- Entry fields: Organization name, Geography, Priority Area, Demographic/Racial information.
- Browse and search features for City Hall staff (don’t have to be mobile).
- Search filters: Organization name, Geography, Priority Area, Demographic/Racial information.
- Browse and search are table-view only (no visualization yet).
Level 2: Extend with Collaborator Visualization
- Add “Collaborators” field in entry form.
- Create visualization of collaborations across community groups.
- Make visualization interactive by providing node-centric information on selected community groups.
- Use D3.js or other visualization library.
Level 3: Encourage User Interaction
- Add “Organization contacts” field to entry form
- Send notifications to organization contacts whenever their organization is viewed or searched.
- Remind them to check out relevant organizations in their geography or priority area.
- Supports sharing content through the platform via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, email, and text.
