Promise Tracker

About

Work with your neighbors and speak to the government

Promise Tracker is a mobile phone-based data collection system that enables communities to collect information on priority issues and monitor the performance of their local governments. Using a simple web application, community groups can design a survey, distribute it, collect data, visualise it on a map then use the resulting data to advocate for change. Promise Tracker is designed to increase the civic engagement and efficacy of community members, giving them a path towards data-driven advocacy on local issues.
