Crowdsourcing and APIs Equal Open Government

Ramon Campos shared this presentation to the URISA Texas group on April 21, 2020.

Tarrant County describes its two-way data-sharing partnership with Google's Waze For Cities Program (formerly Connected Citizens Program, CCP). By integrating an API from the asset management system Cartegraph, and Waze's API, precinct maintenance users can close a road in Cartegraph and the closure is immediately viewable to Wazers within the live map. Tarrant County also describes an automated pothole notification that alerts appropriate Cartegraph users when a pothole is reported via Waze.

Ramon Campos has been with Tarrant County for over nine years. He is the GIS Manager, overseeing three web developers and 30+ users across multiple county departments. His team supports the IT Department's strategic mission to provide cost-efficient technology solutions to Tarrant County Departments, residents, and corporate and government partners.
