Brandeis transparency app

Building the infrastructure to engage citizens on data collection in the public realm.

We partnered with a team of computer science students from Brandeis University lead by professor Pito Salas. Together, we developed an application that contains the locations of sensors throughout the City. The app also displays relevant information using a map interface.

This application has not yet been applied to real sensors, But, it serves as a functional proof of concept. The app has the capacity to increase transparency in data collection for the City of Boston.
