ImproveMyCity – An open source platform for direct citizen-government communication

Figure 5: Demo installation.

Motivation & Overview

In modern societies there is a growing requirement for public administrations to directly communicate with their citizens, view the existing problems from their perspective and re-act to their needs. In meeting this requirement, modern technologies have become a particularly valuable instrument that, apart from being a rich source of information, is also an integral part of our daily activities. Web and mobile civic engagement apps are able to transform citizens into the living sensors of their city and, in this way, help them to actively participate in the improvement of their neighborhood. Fulfilling this goal, ImproveMyCity is a platform that, on the one hand, enables citizens to directly report issues about their neighborhood (e.g. potholes, illegal trash dumping, faulty street lights, broken tiles on sidewalks, and illegal advertising boards), and, on the other hand, provides the necessary back-end infrastructure and interfaces for public servants to keep track of the reported issues, schedule their settlement and provide feedback to the citizen about the progress status. The reported cases go directly into the city’s work order queue for resolution, and users are informed how quickly the case will be closed. When cases are resolved the date and time of the resolution is listed, providing users with the sense that the city is on the job. In this way, ImproveMyCity helps Municipalities to enlist new segments of the population —people who had not previously participated in government—and bring their concerns, insight, energy, and commitment to reinvigorate not only the city but also the government.

 

Video 1:Core concept of ImproveMyCity.

The ImproveMyCity platform is structured as a client-server application and is implemented as an extension of the Joomla framework. The platform consists of a web- based portal for allowing citizens to report issues from their desktop PC, a smartphone application for android devices that allows citizens to do the same process through their mobile phone and a back-end infrastructure for allowing the governmental agencies to easily handle the reported issues. The source code is available in GitHub both for the web-based front-end and the back-end infrastructure, as well as for the mobile front-end. All source codes are provided with detailed user guides explaining how to download and install the applications and are licensed under the under the GNU Affero General Public License. The web-based front-end and back-end infrastructure are also available through the official Joomla Extension Directory (JED).

Service model & Key features

The service model of ImproveMyCity is based on three main pillars: Report – Administer – Analyze. City residents are urged to directly report to their public administration local issues about their neighborhood. Subsequently, the reported issues are automatically transmitted to the appropriate office in public administration so as to schedule their settlement. The administration (i.e. management and routing) of incoming issues is performed through a back-end infrastructure that serves as an integrated management system, allowing the governmental agencies to easily handle the reported issues. Finally, data analysis is performed through a visual analytics tool that employs heatmap-based visualizations and spatio-temporal filters with the aim to offer decision makers valuable insights for improving the city operation. The key features can be summarized as follows:  

Report – Citizens requests, complaints & suggestions
  • Submitted via web or mobile: By allowing citizens to report issues from their home using the web version, or while on the street using the mobile app (iOS &Android)
  • Easily composed but descriptive: By asking citizens to provide only the information necessary to locate and resolve the issue, such as title, description, location and category.
  • Accurately positioned: By offering a map to facilitate citizens in determining the exact location of their issue.
  • Picture enabled: By allowing to attach an image on the spot for describing the issue.
  • Categorized based on their nature: By urging citizens to select one of the pre-specified categories reflecting the municipality departments.
  • Commented and voted: By offering the mechanisms to post comments or vote for issues that have been submitted by other citizens.
Administer – Citizens issues through an integrated management system
  • Browse effectively: Issues are presented on the city map, as an ordered list but also in a single-issue page displaying the full set of submitted details.
  • Distribute responsibilities: Assign one or more officers per category and split the administration effort across the municipality departments.
  • Track pending issues: Issues are automatically routed not only to the appropriate department but also to the inbox of the responsible officer.
  • Monitor progress and update citizens: Resolve issues and inform citizens by email or through a progress indication bar (Open->Acknowledged->Closed).
  • Provide direct feedback: Provide written feedback to the citizens giving non-standard explanations for each specific case.
  • Customize easily: Fully customize the system in terms of user rights, number and nature of categories, notification rules and localization settings.

 

Analyse – Citizens data to gain city insights
  • Filter and explore: Combine temporal filters with free keyword-based search and dynamically explore citizens’ data through interactive visualizations.
  • Aggregate and visualize: Aggregate data based on their spatial density or statistical frequency and visualize them using heatmaps, tag-clouds, color codes and pie charts.
  • Discover hidden patterns: Observe spatio-temporal tendencies, unexpected periodicities, significant outliers, popular issues and prevailing terms.
  • Translate patterns into insights: Identify areas with dissatisfied citizens, under-performing departments due to heavy workload, seasonal burden on city infrastructures, etc.

 

Interface & Installation

The ImproveMyCity platform consists of four main interaction components: a) The web-based front-end for reporting issues through a desktop PC, b) The smartphone-based front-end for reporting issues through a mobile phone, c) the back-end infrastructure and related interfaces for administering the incoming issues, and d) the analyics component for visualizing the reported issues in an interactive manner.

Figure 2: Web-based front-end for issue reporting.

Figure 3: Mobile apps for issue reporting.

Figure 4: Integrated system for managing incoming issues.

Figure 5: Visual analytics for dynamic data exploration.

Since the web-based front-end and the back-end infrastructure and interfaces are developed as standard Joomla components, their installation and running is a plain process. Indeed after a few simple steps the ImproveMyCity back-end infrastructure and the web-based front-end are ready to be used and administered. Similarly, the mobile front-end requires a few extra steps, so as to connect with the server and get synchronized with the web-based front-end. Moreover, due to its nature, ImproveMyCity has been specifically designed to make fully customizable all parameters needed to localize the platform for a certain city. In this respect all language-related menus, geo-positioning related parameters and layout options, are accessible through external files that can be easily edited. Moreover, particular attention has been placed on language-based localization by initiating and maintaining a crowdsourcing project in Transifex.

User-centered design

ImproveMyCity has been developed in close cooperation with the end-users in a co-design process with successive innovation cycles. More specifically, particular attention has been paid in engaging the end-users during the functional and aesthetic design of the application. After identifying the end-user groups (i.e. city stakeholders, citizens, service providers and city visitors), the development team of ImproveMyCity has followed a systematic approach for bringing these groups into the application design loop, including: a) Users’ briefing through informative events focused on specific topics / user groups – including their follow-ups, informative media (demos / videos / newsletters / posters / text messages / forums) to communicate information to users, b) Gathering user’s feedback, by asking users to provide information about their opinion or specific ideas or initiatives, as part of the application optimization process, c) Lead users’ engagement in testing, which encouraged the involvement of users in planning specific actions and influencing decisions. This included one-off, specifically focused events, working groups, focus groups, workshops, questionnaires and interviews. In implementing the aforementioned approach the team of ImproveMyCity has developed a number of early demos that were communicated to the end-users (together with a survey questionnaire) through the official portal of the Municipality. Subsequently, the end users were asked to get familiarized with the version.0 of the application, interact with the demos and complete the questionnaire. At the end of the procedure, all end user groups were familiarized with the demos and they were able to proceed to the evaluation of the applications via the questionnaire. At this point, the development team of ImproveMyCity, taking into consideration the results of the questionnaire, the observations and remarks from lead users and their own experience and opinion; proceeded to the addition of new features and improved the functionality of the initial version, leading to version.1 of the application. This marked the completion of the first innovation cycle. Successive innovation cycles continued to take place as initially designed, until the ImproveMyCity platform reached its final form.

Figure 1: User involvement strategy for successive open innovation cycles.

 

Showcase

A demo installation of ImproveMyCity has been setup to lively demonstrate the features of the application. You can navigate through a set of fictionary issues in order to get in touch with the application workflow and functionality. See the application running, submit issues through the Android or the iPhone App and watch them appear in the demo installation.

Figure 5: Demo installation.


Highlights & Future Plans

The ImproveMyCity platform was originally deployed in the Municipality of Thermi, Greece in April 2012. One year later more than 500 users were registered, generating more than 585 issues and 1350 comments. Since its official release as an open source software, ImproveMyCity has been viewed more than 15000 times and downloaded more than 3800 times. Based on our current records (June 2014) there are more than 35 intallations (active & pilot) around the globe. Although the idea of engaging citizens into a two-way dialogue with their administration for improving their urban space has been around for some time, e.g. FixMyStreetSeeClickFix, BuitenBeter, ImproveMyCity is the first integrated solution that is made available as open source and covers the full-chain of information flow, ranging from the desktop user that reports issues from the leisure of his home and the mobile citizen that reports issues while on the move, all the way to the back-end management system for administering the incoming issues and the reports with aggregated statistics for performance assessment and future planning of resources. Moreover, characterized by its simple installation process, its extensive customization options and its minimum requirements in terms of additional hardware or external software libraries, ImproveMyCity is ideal for municipalities that don’t want to invest many resources until they are convinced about the benefits of citizen-government collaboration for urban maintenance and improvement. Our future plans include the extension of the existing back-end infrastructure for administering the incoming issues, with a sophisticated ticketing system that will allow for dynamic responsibility allocation and close progress monitoring. On the mobile side, our next step will be towards becoming more integrated with social media by allowing users to login with their social accounts and share their ImproveMyCity-related activity with their friends.

ACM TOMCCAP becomes ACM TOMM

On 23rd May 2014, ACM TOMCCAP becomes ACM TOMM.

This acronym change is the result of a discussion within the journal’s Editorial Board, within SIGMM and between the ACM SIGMM Executive Committee and the Editorial Board. It is a process which started already in the year 2011.

Two reasons have led to the final decision: 1.) Many scientists, authors and readers have been telling us that the acronym “TOMCCAP” is somehow strange; it does not imply the journal’s focus on Multimedia research, it is too long and complicated; it sounds too specialized for a leading journal which highlights all aspects of Multimedia research. 2.) With this name change we want to emphasize the strong and long lasting collaboration with the ACM Multimedia conference (ACM MM) which we plan to further increase in the future.

Errata: SIGMM Records March 2014

In the March 2014 issue of the SIGMM Records, a mistake happened in the article “Most cited papers before the era of ICMR“. On the list of most-cited papers from CIVR 2009, a paper with a similar title was listed in fourth place instead of the correct CIVR paper. The title of the paper holding fourth place should be:

MPEG Column: 108th MPEG Meeting

Opening Plenary of the 108th MPEG meeting in Valencia, Spain.

— original posts here and here by Multimedia Communication blog and bitmovin techblogChristian TimmererAAU/bitmovin

The 108th MPEG meeting was held at the Palacio de Congresos de Valencia in Spain featuring the following highlights (no worries about the acronyms, this is on purpose and they will be further explained below):

  • Requirements: PSAF, SCC, CDVA
  • Systems: M2TS, MPAF, Green Metadata
  • Video: CDVS, WVC, VCB
  • JCT-VC: SHVC, SCC
  • JCT-3D: MV/3D-HEVC, 3D-AVC
  • Audio: 3D audio

Opening Plenary of the 108th MPEG meeting in Valencia, Spain.

The official MPEG press release can be downloaded from the MPEG Web site. Some of the above highlighted topics will be detailed in the following and, of course, there’s an update on DASH-related matters at the end.

As indicated above, MPEG is full of (new) acronyms and in order to become familiar with those, I’ve put them deliberately in the overview but I will explain them further below.

PSAF – Publish/Subscribe Application Format

Publish/subscribe corresponds to a new network paradigm related to content-centric networking (or information-centric networking) where the content is addressed by its name rather than location. An application format within MPEG typically defines a combination of existing MPEG tools jointly addressing the needs for a given application domain, in this case, the publish/subscribe paradigm. The current requirements and a preliminary working draft are publicly available.

SCC – Screen Content Coding

I’ve introduced this topic in my previous report and this meeting the responses to the CfP have been evaluated. In total, seven responses have been received which meet all requirements and, thus, the actual standardization work is transferred to JCT-VC. Interestingly, the results of the CfP are publicly available. Within JCT-VC, a first test model has been defined and core experiments have been established. I will report more on this as an output of the next meetings…

CDVA – Compact Descriptors for Video Analysis

This project has been renamed from compact descriptors for video search to compact descriptors for video analysis and comprises a publicly available vision statement. That is, interested parties are welcome to join this new activity within MPEG.

M2TS – MPEG-2 Transport Stream

At this meeting, various extensions to M2TS have been defined such as transport of multi-view video coding depth information and extensions to HEVC, delivery of timeline for external data as well as carriage of layered HEVC, green metadata, and 3D audio. Hence, M2TS is still very active and multiple amendments are developed in parallel.

MPAF – Multimedia Preservation Application Format

The committee draft for MPAF has been approved and, in this context, MPEG-7 is extended with additional description schemes.

Green Metadata

Well, this standard does not have its own acronym; it’s simply referred to as MPEG-GREEN. The draft international standard has been approved and national bodies will vote on it at the JTC 1 level. It basically defines metadata to allow clients operating in an energy-efficient way. It comes along with amendments to M2TS and ISOBMFF that enable the carriage and storage of this metadata.

CDVS – Compact Descriptors for Visual Search

CDVS is at DIS stage and provide improvements on global descriptors as well as non-normative improvements of key-point detection and matching in terms of speedup and memory consumption. As all standards at DIS stage, national bodies will vote on it at the JTC 1 level.

What’s new in the video/audio-coding domain?

  • WVC – Web Video Coding: This project reached final draft international standard with the goal to provide a video-coding standard for Web applications. It basically defines a profile of the MPEG-AVC standard including those tools not encumbered by patents.
  • VCB – Video Coding for Browsers: The committee draft for part 31 of MPEG-4 defines video coding for browsers and basically defines VP8 as an international standard. This is explains also the difference to WVC.
  • SHVC – Scalable HEVC extensions: As for SVC, SHVC will be defined as an amendment to HEVC providing the same functionality as SVC, scalable video coding functionality.
  • MV/3D-HEVC, 3D-AVC: These are multi-view and 3D extensions for the HEVC and AVC standards respectively.
  • 3D Audio: Also, no acronym for this standard although I would prefer 3DA. However, CD has been approved at this meeting and the plan is to have DIS at the next meeting. At the same time, the carriage and storage of 3DA is being defined in M2TS and ISOBMFF respectively.

Finally, what’s new in the media transport area, specifically DASH and MMT?

As interested readers know from my previous reports, DASH 2nd edition has been approved has been approved some time ago. In the meantime, a first amendment to the 2nd edition is at draft amendment state including additional profiles (mainly adding xlink support) and time synchronization. A second amendment goes to the first ballot stage referred to as proposed draft amendment and defines spatial relationship description, generalized URL parameters, and other extensions. Eventually, these two amendments will be integrated in the 2nd edition which will become the MPEG-DASH 3rd edition. Also a corrigenda on the 2nd edition is currently under ballot and new contributions are still coming in, i.e., there is still a lot of interest in DASH. For your information – there will be two DASH-related sessions at Streaming Forum 2014.

On the other hand, MMT’s amendment 1 is currently under ballot and amendment 2 defines header compression and cross-layer interface. The latter has been progressed to a study document which will be further discussed at the next meeting. Interestingly, there will be a MMT developer’s day at the 109th MPEG meeting as in Japan, 4K/8K UHDTV services will be launched based on MMT specifications and in Korea and China, implementation of MMT is now under way. The developer’s day will be on July 5th (Saturday), 2014, 10:00 – 17:00 at the Sapporo Convention Center. Therefore, if you don’t know anything about MMT, the developer’s day is certainly a place to be.
