Calling all Philly orgs: how could a crowdsourced map help you? Think fast and you might get it.

OpenPlans, the New York City-based open data nonprofit, is giving away free installations of Shareabouts, its crowdsourced place data tool. See it in action here, where Portland is using it to collect ideas about possible bikeshare locations.

Shareabouts launched last December, and the Philly OpenPlans team – former local Code for America fellows Mjumbe Poe and Aaron Ogle, who work out of Old City coworking spot Indy Hall – have been working on scaling it. OpenPlans is now looking for local partners for the project, Ogle says.

Apply by Sept. 13 at 5 p.m. for a free installation of the tool here.

In order to apply, you only need an idea of what you’d like to do with the tool. OpenPlans will choose the best projects and set up Shareabouts for you. Find some ideas of what to do with the tool here.
