I managed to import the Morrisville data. I'm having some difficulty figuring out what to filter on and much of it is very cryptic. So the next step is probably figuring out what to display.

Unfortunately it only works on my local system at the moment. I'll have to pull more dependencies into the OpenShift environment before I can run it in the cloud.

The Development Map project gave me an excuse to play with some technologies I've had my eye on for a while (geospatial, AngualrJS, and RedHat's OpenShift platform). I put together a small proof of concept over the weekend that mainly involved linking together a bunch of open source apps. The UI is pretty ugly (and not mobile friendly at all), but the back-end has some pretty awesome capabilities that I've barely started to explore. Checkout the running app on OpenShift and the code on GitHub (please excuse the many spelling errors in code comments--I tend to type in a hurry).

It was a lot of fun to do; maybe we can leverage bits of it to get us closer to a full-fledged app!

From CfA. Please fill this out:

Greetings Brigade Member!

We're writing to ask you to take five minutes today to help us build a better Code for America Brigade program. Will you take our quick, anonymous survey?

Our network has grown immensely over the past year. The program has 81 Brigades, including 22 international Brigades in 6 countries, and over 4,600 members.

We are excited about all of the work you are doing around the world to bring civic innovation to your communities. Unfortunately, we have very little information about who you are!

We believe deeply that civic tech doesn’t work unless it works for everyone--and is being built by everyone. Understanding who is participating in all these great activities will keep us accountable to making sure we are building an inclusive program that fully represents the cities where we work.

Please take five minutes today to fill out the short and anonymous survey to help build a stronger Brigade community.

Thanks for all you do.

Best,
Catherine Bracy
Director of Community Organizing
Code for America

Very interesting that I could not "collaborate-invite" you to this edit this map http://goo.gl/maps/9PgsZ through G+ but only via email. I created this to illustrate the importance of dates to citizens in tracking the process.
