GEOspeach: WEB-GIS Discussion Forum

GeoSpeach (GEOspraak) is a combination of a web-gis viewer and discussion forum. GeoSpeach has been developed for municipalities to offer their residents a forum for discussion on the inernet based on specific locations.

The control of the Viewer is simple and familiar due to the similarity with Google Maps. GeoSpeach has been used as "traffic and transport" forum for the municipality of Monsterland. GeoSpeach can be used, after small changes, as software to collect any (location bound) remarks from the public.
