Who We Are
Open Local's Goals
Platform and Services
Open Local is responsible for Australian implementations of Collaboratory, FixMyStreet, a hosted Open311 platform and MapIt server.
Open311 is a standard to empower collaborative, location-based issue tracking. For example, in FixMyStreet it is ideal if a local council is using Open311 because it can publish the different categories of issues that it handles, such as potholes, graffiti, illegal dumping, etc and FixMyStreet will help users categorise issues accordingly and then send them to the local council's Open311 server. The Open311 server can then automatically load those issues into the council's internal system and notify the right people to get the issue sorted out quickly.
We can help councils provide an Open311 interface to their systems through a hosted Open311 platform that appropriate Council staff can log into and update as required.
If you'd like to help bring FixMyStreet or Open311 to your area, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
