Digital Democracy development


Posted by Democratise | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 23-11-2010

As well as furiously writing code for the Digital Democracy backend, in the past week or so we’ve been working on two new features: avatar generation and maps integration.

Avatars might seem like a pretty simple addition, but we hope they’ll let users express themselves a little bit more. Once the feature is coded in we’ll be able to add more options to the generation process at a later date.

More fundamental to the functionality of the site is the integration of a mapping service. This is something web users have come to expect of sites these days, but we’re hoping to go a stage further than most in its execution. After a brief debate we’re tentatively proceeding to test OS OpenSpace as the platform of choice and we’re quite excited about what we’ll soon be able to do with it… more details soon!
