The Cities Navigator Project is a mobile application that enables governments and cities to improve their resiliency and emergency preparedness. It features a mass communication app, navigation capabilities and online citizen services. With Its streamlined configuration capabilities, we can onboard a new country within 5 days using an existing OSM map.
We leverage participatory mapping and have built a simplified interface and process to quickly add service points. In addition, the solution enables service providers like hospitals, pharmacies, gas station, trash collectors to provide real time availability information for their services or critical products.
