Mapping community 'places'

I'm working on the http://ALISS.org project and would like to look at ways of mapping venues for health/social activity.

Democratic decision engine

I'm obsessed with the potential creation of a democratic decision engine - a modular tool that can be used to create agreed popular decisions amongst groups of any size, allowing groups to take on direct responsibility for choices that are currently made on their behalf by Boards, or representative individuals.
