DialogMap - Spatially enhanced dialogues

This repository contains a Rails/Angular single-page application to support dialogues with spatial references. It allows users to reference spatial features to parts of their contributions. Other users can write answers with own spatial references. It was developed in the context of a masters thesis with the title "Supporting public deliberation through spatially enhanced dialogues" by Gerald Pape. The aim of the thesis is to study the benefits applying dialogues on a map to public deliberation. You can find a small demonstration video here.

Features

  • Creation of topics with categories, picture and time limit
  • Creation of new spatial features (points, polygons) with reference to text (words)
  • Creation of references to spatial features created within the context of other contributions
  • Creation of hyperlinks
  • Edit your contributions and answers
  • Two way highlighting between textual and spatial representations
  • Sign up with Facebook, Google, Twitter (more possible thanks to Omniauth)
  • Favorite contributions and answers (similar to Facebook Like)
  • Filter contributions by categories and full text
  • Sort categories
