Valpo.net

Valpo.net is a urban experiment and a framework for a citizen network in Valparaiso, Chile. It was launched within the activities of II. Festival Teatro Container (2009) with the idea to extend the public of the plays and opening up a tool for local organizations, later on this version was used by local citizen organizations to promote information about the "Cabildo" of Valparaíso.

In response to the damages produced by the earthquake in 2010, we transformed valpo.net into a collaborative mapping tool. The platform helped to manage direct requests from citizen with damaged homes to the local architecture association. We further want to develop this into a project for a collaborative mapping of the urban area declared world heritage in Valparaiso. We are searching for professionals and organizations interested to participate in this effort.
