The Civic Crowd is a Google Maps based application mapping amazing citizen-powered initiatives and ideas in the UK.
Users of the map can search for initiatives on the map by location and by type of project, for example, education, enterprise, housing etc. Projects are displayed on the map by categorised map markers and it is possible to click-through to read more details about each project.
Users can 'Appreciate' individual projects or ideas to show support for an initiative. It is also possible to 'Volunteer to Support' a project and specify the type of support you offer from within your personal profile.
If you know of a project that hasn't yet been mapped it is possible to add it by completing a short form.
