Crowdsourcing to report issues, outages and area problems.

By: mives | 06-11-2013 18:36

Would it be possible to run a crowdsourced map showing areas with outages.

 

Possibly twitter based?

 

I'm thinking something similar to the Uk snow map system, which uses feedback from users of twitter to report when snow is seen in the area. This to me seems a very quick way for Giff Gaff to establish problems, check the locality of the issue and resolve the issues. I have included a link below to the UK snow map for an idea of exactly what i'm trying to describe.

I'm not sure what this would involve, but seemed to me a quick and easy way to see any issues.

An old but worthy idea. Forget Twitter, connectivity issues / signal strength should be logged on demand by the Giffgaff App and then uploaded at a convenient time. Most smart phones know where they are even if they are out of coverage and can log a gps derived position which should be accurate to about +/- 30 metres.

If there is an outage people in the affected area by definition wouldn't find it very easy using the downed service to report it?

This could be useful, however, I wish never to need such map.
