LiveCyle Forms with GeoLocation

Currently, Hennepin County owns Adobe LiveCycle. This allows for numerous possibilities that could be incorporated into ideas. The idea I'd like to propose specifically for this event, is to start building some forms that have geolocation embedded into the form that would then determine which service center or provider receives the form or application. (Based on location upon submission.) Could either make the submission ...more »

Community Information Display

Libraries got new signage, awhile back, with a lighted display indicating whether the site is open or closed. To improve, add more display (like to show time, temperature, and other LOCAL info, such as snow emergencies, severe weather alerts, community events, etc. Many patrons thought the money spent on the signs could have been better used, although we explained that they were paid for by a separate fund.

Platform for visual tours

Suppose a government org or a private group wanted to create a photo tour for a particular theme, such as the murals of South Minneapolis, or historic buildings in NE, or homes of famous people.

Pothole Alert

Create an app which shows reported potholes on a map and has an audio alert system. Users can report potholes with the app or through the existing reporting page online and could turn off the alert if they're already aware of the pothole. Minneapolis has a city service reporting app, perhaps we could use some of their reported information on potholes?

Real-Time Public Transit App

Buses are great, except when they are early or really late, or there's a detour you didn't realize was in effect. Same for the lightrail, although it doesn't experience time problems as much. What would be really helpful is an app that has all the stops for all the public transportation, what buses stop there (with the option to see the route right there on the map), and most importantly, where the bus is RIGHT NOW. ...more »
