Public input - Validated
Getting routes – As a planner, you not only need origin destination data, you may also need to know routes and barriers.
People add comments – With this survey, people can draw lines and add points on a custom base map.
People validate comments – People can view comments made by others, and they can add their own comments.
It’s like being at a public meeting and having people show you what they care about.
Public input - Closed Survey
Survey on a Map – A survey question pops up when a line or point is added to the map.
