The Ottawan is a web application designed to allow Ottawa citizens to write reviews and make suggestions about city venues like parks and sports fields etc.
A user can make a suggestion and others can comment on it creating debate and helping the best ideas to be shared in the community.
RSS feeds are used to keep people in touch with the evolution of interesting ideas.
The Ottawan facilitates debate on these suggestions by making it easy to express your opinion on suggestions and to gather supporters for suggestions and ideas.
Reviews written by users can help residents form an opinion about the quality and facilities of each venue.
Interactive maps are used to locate venues and how to get to them by driving, walking or bicycling.
