Hopeworks on TV

The Philadelphia Fox station ran a news feature on HopeworksNCamen's DCCB community mapping project. They have created an Internet interface that allows users to post locations of community concerns, like abandoned vehicles or street lights that are out, requiring an official response. When they don't get a quick response, the map markers turn colors to illustrate patterns of non-response. For instance, it looks like the Eastern part of the City (District 4) has a much lower response rate to posted problems.
