CitizensOnDuty.com: Reporting neighborhood problems with a twist

It seems that Greece has just acquired its own flavour of crowdsourced, problem reporting app. Citizensonduty.com is what you would expect from the likes of FixMyStreet and SeeClickFix: On top of a Google map background, users can report problems in their local area so that the Local Council will (in theory) fix them. Citizens on Duty though has an extra feature that the other apps don’t. It also displays thematic data using the “Cl@rity” database, Greek government’s transparency initiative whereby all government decisions and associated costs are published on the web. For now, the only interesting data that you can see on the map is the amount of spending per municipality. Definitely worths a look – but you may need Google Translate as its Greek only!
