Smart cities use a combination of IT infrastructure and GIS to manage various city services – from parking to rubbish collection. We’ve worked as a technical partner to deploy two platforms in Harare and Kariba to collect (or crowd-source) information from residents on the functioning of city services. The platforms are built on the open source Fix My Street infrastructure and allow residents to report and monitor issues in a transparent manner.
The platforms also make prioritizing work and monthly reporting requirements easier for city officials.
