A lot continues to happen, but we wanted to spend some time making our pricing clear.
How WikiMapping benefits planners
WikiMapping benefits planners who need to get meaningful public input for bicycle and pedestrian projects. It supplements public meeting input, and it saves planners time by capturing data digitally in a structured way. Planners get more data, from more people and in less time, than they could get in person. The data can be analyzed in GIS.
While public meetings have their place, WikiMapping can collect thousands of comments from hundreds of people in just a few weeks when used in conjunction with social media.
WikiMapping works on iOS, Android, Chrome, Firefox and current versions of Internet Explorer. Data can be exported into GIS formats. WikiMapping is built to work on open source mapping or google maps platforms. We do not guarantee that google will be an option in the future.
As WikiMapping moves into its second year, our pricing structure, like much of the service, reflects the requests of our users. The following information relates to subscription pricing, not custom projects.
Our pricing goals:
- Sustain maintenance and proactive development of WikiMapping.
- Scale to the needs of WikiMapping users.
- Provide access to new users.
- Project Administrator Manages a project and an account.
- Group Multiple project administrators that share access to projects
- Commenter/User People contributing comments to a project (the public)
- Draft Project Non-public project. Has up to 3 commenters and 10 comments. It is accessible to the public.
- Active Project Project is funded, has a start date, and is accessible to the public.
- Archived Project A project no-longer accessible to the public.
There is no charge for setting up a draft project. When you are ready to make it public, select “Activate”. This will take you to a PayPal payment page. The price for a one year project is $349.
- Your project is active for one year, and you’ll have an option to renew before the project expires.
- Projects are set up for 1000 users and 3000 comments. If you need more, we can upgrade this.
- Data can be hosted indefinitely. If your subscription lapses, the project is archived. The public won’t be able to access the data, and you won’t be able to edit it. You will still be able to view it.
- Each project is billed individually.
- A project administrator may close a project to the public at any time.
- A project administrator to repurpose an existing active project for something new within the activated year.
- Use of google maps is not guaranteed.
Ownership & Privacy:
We have access to projects and data. This enables us to support project administrators and helps us test and improve the effectiveness of WikiMapping. We may use this data collected internally to improve WikiMapping.
It is in our interest to not share data you collect without your permission. So, we won’t. Nor do we contact people who contribute to your projects.
Using data on other systems:
Data collected can be exported and used in multiple GIS programs. So, if your organization prefers to store the data on your own system long-term, you can.
