GeoComunidad embraces different environments of applications for communities built upon the GeoCitizens methodological framework and technological platform.

All these environments seek to structure an informative approach to engage citizens, habitants and local initiatives and organizations in taking collective action regarding the conservation, management, and design of there living environments.

The Geo-Citizens platform merges geo-web technologies and social media in one single, comprehensive, and interactive tool for participatory spatial planning. It allows citizens and communities to collaboratively report observations, discuss ideas, solve and monitor issues in their neighbourhoods.
