In public outreach events, participants provide instant feedback by commenting on ideas, building on previous discussion, and voicing their own concerns – letting you and others know what they like and what they don’t like. To capture this same environment, sMap allows users to ‘vote’ on input provided by other participants, with the option to click ‘thumbs up’ or ‘thumbs down’ on individual points. This allows sMap to function as a forum, where participants can provide their opinion on a variety of ideas generated by other respondents, in a clear and concise manner.
