We are delighted to announce that Cyclescape has been successfully awarded a grant from the Polden-Puckham Charitable Foundation for the next phase of development on Cyclescape.
The grant covers £10,000 of development work this year, and £8,000 in 2015-16.
The Polden-Puckham Charitable Foundation (PPCF) is a grant-giving trust with Quaker family roots in the United Kingdom. It aims to contribute to the development of a just society based on a commitment to nonviolence and environmental sustainability.
Key things that we want to work on, which the funding will contribute towards, are:
- Launching the automated planning applications integration - changes when datasource finalised (see previous blog post)
- Show Google Street View at any location automatically
- Membership management system for delegated groups
- Ability to invite decision-makers and others into specific discussions
- Enhancement of the Library system, which enables key resources to be shared nationally
- Subscription on the basis of themes (e.g. cycle parking) rather than only defined areas
- Private messaging system
- Much better search
- Deadline reminders
- Show photos in nearby area automatically
- ... and more.
You can see many of these within the list of outstanding issues in our public bug-tracker.
