How does it work?

1. Start by Listening

Nightmarket

Organizations start Projects by asking a question. We encourage organizers to engage people in public space and online.

2. Collect insights

Ph insights

Collect insights from workshops and public installations, SMS, Twitter, and on Neighborland. Map insights to specific places. All participant data is uploaded to your project website. Your project website will work on all mobile devices, tablets, and desktops.

Case Studies:

"How can we make Central Market a safer, cleaner, more vibrant neighborhood?"

"How can we make Market Street a vibrant, more connected place?"

"What's your vision for the Turner Field Stadium Neighborhoods?"

3. Discuss and prioritize insights

Ph vote

Residents “me too” ideas to up-vote and subscribe to updates on that issue. They discuss and share insights on how to make ideas they support happen. You share events and message all your supporters during the key inflection points of your project

Case Studies:

"We want new ways to improve the quality of the life of the homeless people in Central Market."

"We want Data Lanterns – a network of sculptural civic totems that reveal and illuminate layers of urban data on Market Street."

"We want a mix of retail, restaurants, shops, and entertainment at Turner Field."

4. Help make great ideas happen

Ph action

We have sophisticated moderation, clustering, and de-duplication tools for organizers to aggregate all of the data from residents. Our reports make it easy for organizers to see trends in the data, make decisions, allocate resources, and keep participants involved in the fun part – making their neighborhoods better places.

Case Studies:

Twitter and Compass Family Services open the Neighbornest, a community resource center, in Central Market.
