Shareabouts is an online mapping tool to gather crowdsourced public input in a social and engaging process. Using Shareabouts, people can drop a pin on a map to provide ideas, suggestions, and comments for planning and design issues. And as a mobile-friendly application, Shareabouts makes it easy to add input on the go.

A short guide to setting up Shareabouts

It's helpful, but not required, to know about the architecture of Shareabouts before starting.

The easiest way to set up Shareabouts is to use the Heroku Button.

Deploy

This will deploy a fully-functional Shareabouts map and datastore to your account on Heroku (an easy-to-manage hosting service). Hosting this way will cost $50-100 monthly. Here's the process.

Alternatively, you may want to use a different hosting service and set up the components of Shareabouts manually.
