In 2012, Austin City Council directed staff to provide publicly-accessible information about how City funds are spent on capital improvements. CIVIC (Capital Improvements Visualization, Information and Communication) was developed in-house using an agile approach, leveraging technology and data resources currently available to City staff. This approach enabled staff to create a Web App giving citizens the ability to conduct location analytics on the City’s capital investments.
