A Google Maps Transport Survey
The City of Cockburn in Australia has developed an innovative way to survey the community about local transportation issues using the Google Maps API.
The City of Cockburn Integrated Transport Survey allows residents to pinpoint local transport issues on a Google Map. Respondents can add a marker to the map at the location of their concern and leave a comment highlighting the transport issue.
All issues that have been highlighted on the map are visible to other residents, who can vote on each issue by either agreeing or disagreeing with them. The issues raised by the survey will contribute to the development of the Cockburn Integrated Transport Strategy.
