About the Project

Description

As the state of emergency has been declared everywhere to rapidly slow the spread of COVID-19, we need to find creative ways to help small businesses (restaurants, groceries, pharmacies, etc.) that are still open.

Doko is a tool to easily map all the businesses that are still operating.
We aim to help local and small businesses to share their information and keep customers up-to-date about any changes as they navigate this crisis

How far along is it

The tool is operational and already used by a few towns.

Who is already working on this

Jules and I were working on Doko Maps as a tool to create, organize and share places on a map! For COVID-19, we implemented a system to create collaborative maps. Now the tool makes it possible for anyone to add information of any business open during COVID-19 directly on the map using the "suggest a place to add" button.
