Online Resources (Click on bulleted links)
Links to websites which demonstrate App Applications ranging from community data collection, fostering community engagement to visualizing community data. Their listing does not imply any endorsement or recommendation on my part or community sponsors. They are provided to give competitors ideas and possible resources for their own project. In some instances, source code is available. In other instances, the coding is fairly sophisticated, programmed by professional developers. In this case, we are presenting them to give you ideas of possible apps, not to challenge your coding skills. Others you want to share? Let me know. Questions, concerns, ideas, contact me.
New links (as of January 1, 2013) focused on App Development
