GardenHub - Community Gardens web app Hibernating

Keep up with our progress at: http://gardenhub.phl.io

300+ Community Gardens in Philly. 1000s across the country. Lets make them awesome!

'GardenHub' is a web-based app to make it easier to track—and communicate—what's growing/ripening in the various plots of community gardens, so we can better manage our PHS City Harvest food donations, as well as collect data on community garden efficacy.

The Vision

• help community gardens funnel more healthy, local food to people who need it;

• help people in transition secure meaningful work; and • help optimize the promise of…

Original problem statement: "How can we identify substandard housing? Many rental properties are unlicensed and other with many code violations.

TEAM STATEMENT:

L&I goal (to be approved by Shannon) - to provide a minimum standard of living for every resident of Philadelphia.

Team goal - Provide information highlighting properties below minimum…

Mesh Networking Hardware Hibernating

Open mesh networking hardware that can be joined together into a mesh network . Can be used on its own with built in screen or can have data routed to it to extend the functionality of other open source projects. We've nicknamed it HiJump because the signal between devices involves a combo of hi/low transmissions and because once a device receives a payload, the devices around it are checked to see if they have yet received that specific payload. If not, it then jumps to them. The goal is for this device to be small enough to comfortably fit onto a keychain, to contain a low-res character…

Data Science for Civic Hackers Hibernating

IPython Notebooks on Data Science for Civic Hackers

Instead of an app, my plan is to create a set of IPython notebooks on how civic hackers can do data science effectively. We are currently experiencing a surge of new data and tools that can help us derive conclusions from the data. Software packages containing methods from Statistics, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence have been open-sourced and available for all to use. Like all tools, however, you have to know how to use these methods effectively. There are other great IPython notebooks out there related to…

MarketPlace for school partners Hibernating

We are developing a platform that enables schools to locate profit or non-profit organizations for funding and services, and allows organizations to reach out to schools for donations.

Original SDP request

> Building a technology solution that will match potential partners with schools. The goal is to develop a registeration site where partnering organizations will 'register' and tell SDP officials about their projects and describe there services. Schools would also 'register' and share their strategic goals and solicit partnerships in specific program and administrative areas. The…

Philly Map of Shame Hibernating

PHL Map of Shame is a citizen-led project to map the impact of the School Reform Commission’s "doomsday budget" on students and parents. We will visualize complaints filed with the Pennsylvania Department of Education.

The Pennsylvania state constitution says that students must be provided with a "thorough and efficient system of public education." If children are being denied educational services, parents, and others with first-hand knowledge of the situation, have the right to file a complaint with the Pennsylvania Department of Education. The Secretary of Education has a…

Real-time Transit Notifications Hibernating

I'd like to develop a service that can send SMS, email or maybe Twitter messages on updates to Philly trains and flights that users can subscribe to. The service would be open to other apps to so they could add message notifications without building it themselves. Think sending a POST to this service which takes the rest from there. The app would also have a front-end that would allow you to search for a flight or train and then subscribe.

I'd like to write the backend in Node on Amazon Web Services, need help writing the front-end. Definitely doable in a weekend!

If there are other…

Philadelphia for Early Childhood Education Mapping Project Hibernating

Research, and common sense, indicate that early childhood is a pivotal time for creating the foundation for success in future learning. Did you know that only 7% of early childhood education centers in the city are considered "high quality" by the state's Keystone STARS rating system? And, consequentially, that only a small fraction of Philadelphia's children have access to an quality early childhood education setting?

This mapping project is a tool that will be used to reveal to City Council the state of early childhood education in each district, as part of an effort to mobilize…

School District of Philadelphia Budget - Data Liberation and Visualization Hibernating

The School District of Philadelphia posts budgets for their schools on their website. However, this data is in PDF format and therefore cannot be easily used by developers and others interested in examining the budgets of schools in a programmatic fashion.

This project aims to do 2 things. First, convert the budgets to a RESTful API for others to use. Second, to visualize the budget data in a meaningful way for the community.

The code used to generate data for an API is available on https://github.com/philasdbudget/philasdbudget….
