Infrastructure Management

The revolution starts with you. Join the counterculture. Decentralize our infrastructure

infrastructure management

Crowdsourcing data collection can capture real-time conditions of infrastructure, help digitize new information, creating a single comprehensive source of infrastructure and environmental data

Problem

Imbalanced access to information between service providers and citizens
The lack of general incentive among parties to challenge the status quo

Approach
