Social Tools for Crisis Response

February 24, 2010

The March 2nd Net Tuesday Philly Meetup will take place at 6:00 PM at the law offices of Buchanan, Ingersoll & Rooney (on the 32nd floor of 2 Liberty Place, 50 S. 16th Street) in Philadelphia.

Social tools (including Facebook, Twitter, GIS/mapping applications, mobile technology, image and video sharing services) are being used in ways that are creative, widely participative and, often, surprisingly effective – ushering in a new type of crisis response virtually unavailable just a decade ago. For discussion – this phenomenon and how it might be relevant to you today.

Mercer County BLOS Interactive Bikeability Map presentation added to March 3 #DVRPC IREG Agenda

February 22, 2010

DVRPC has launched a new web site for Mercer County NJ residents and bicyclists, to help them plan bicycle-friendly routes to ride. The site will also help planners identify priority bicycle corridors and facilities to be considered in the future. We are looking for stakeholders’ ideas on priority bicycle routes, and their opinions on the routes submitted by others. We also welcome any knowledge they have about the bikeability ratings shown: are they too high, too low, or do they not reflect a specific local issue? Proposed routes and comments will be accepted until Friday, March 12th.
