Stickymap.com launches free Community Organization Mapping Tool
October 16, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsFairfield, Connecticut, October 16, 2007 - Stickymap.com, a social action website sponsored by Neighborhood Resources LLC of Weston, CT, launched a free community organization mapping tool today, October 15.
“The new addition to our website allows community organizations to create interactive maps of their neighborhoods. We’ve taken our interactive technology that we developed two years ago as Yale University students and packaged it to allow community groups to share projects in their neighborhoods with the entire online community,” said Daniel Wiznia, project manager and co-founder.
Stickymap is a free application that helps non-profits and other community organizations demonstrate their impact in their neighborhoods as well as their relationships with local businesses.
“Several community organizations in New Haven have been testing the application for the last few months, and since we’ve been receiving requests from other groups, we thought it made sense to make Stickymap’s community organization tools accessible to everyone,” said Max Sklar, co-founder and lead developer.
Stickymap provides an interactive interface that facilitates collaborative community support and learning.
Residents, business owners, and community leaders are able to share their opinions and work together to build a stronger and more vibrant neighborhood environment.
“We want everyone to share their neighborhoods,” Sklar said. “Stickymap.com allows users to inform others about their communities.”
The map-making application allows groups to place locations on a custom map, and share this map with residents and organizations in their community. The map provides a graphical representation of the neighborhood and has an interface that allows the community to upload photos and leave comments about locations on the map.
Stickymap is focusing on helping community organizations, foundations, chambers of commerce, and non-profits build strong communities.
Stickymap.com technology was developed by Yale University graduates Max Sklar and Daniel Wiznia.
