New Database of Tools for Participation and Collaboration in Urban Planning

Posted: October 15th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Technology, Urban Development | Tags: , | 2 Comments »

Over at my MIT webspace I just launched a database of web tools for participation and collaboration in planning. I created it mostly to help myself keep track of all the technology and consultants in this area, and also because of my dissatisfaction with existing databases. It’s not meant to be all-encompassing, just cover the important tools and some of the more innovative projects out there. Comments and suggestions are welcome!

    Thanks for collecting all of these tools. I’ve been doing some of my own research into this, and now you’ve just made my life a little easier. In my experience, the old-school listserv is how 99% of online collaboration happens among planners. Blogs are very slim. It will be interesting to see how many of these newer tools get picked up.
