Using the Civitas App to allow residents to take pictures of drain leakages or hazardous waste and alert the municipality using location services to improve the response time of the municipality. Residents can also make crime alerts through Civitas and monitor traffic congestion. This will improve service delivery within the municipality.
My project is a mobile phone application. The Nelson Mandela Bay as well as the rest of South Africa is currently experiencing water shortages. The app would allow resident of municipalities to take pictures of damaged water pipes and drain leakages and upload the images onto the app to quickly and efficiently inform the municipality of the location of the leaks, for municipal workers to efficiently remedy them.
The app can be adapted for residents to alert SAPS of commission of crimes using mobile phone videos and pictures as well as locations uploaded and sent to police officials
