Interaction between residents and their local authorities is increasingly important. Intergraph®’s Mobile Alert is a free, easy-to-use smartphone application for reporting issues of public concern to the local council (based on GPS location). These issues can involve anything from graffiti to road problems, such as potholes and broken signage. The app has an intuitive interface, which allows the user to complete a report and send it off to the cloud easily in a few minutes. Reported incidents are sent to an Intergraph cloud service, which then redirects problems to councils based on territorial boundary data.
