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.

We would like to create a digital tool for residents of North Minneapolis to search for and participate in Digital Innovation endeavors. Currently, offerings are disperate and the community is in need a central rallying point from which work to close the digital divide.
Set up a process to map/identify locations with AEDs. It could be done as a contest where people could form teams and win "badges" or points for how many they submit.
