Hi. This is a great idea and we have been trying to do something similar with our crowdsourced mobile app Safetipin. It is available on the app store and google play for free. We have so far collected information mostly in Delhi, but have also started in Bangalore and Guwahati. The information collected using sfety audits is then shared with service providers. Please take a look at our entry Safetipinhttp://www.openideo.com/challenge/womens-safety/ideas/building-safety-centres-using-safetipin.

We at Safetipin have found this partnership with BNY very fruitful. We are thrilled that they have found Safetipin to be a useful tool in mapping public spaces and using the data to interact with communities and neighborhoods. We hope many other groups in cities around the world also find Safetipin a useful tool to analyse the safety of their public spaces.

Thanks Anya. It has in fact been launched in Bengaluru and Guwahati more recently. Also a Spanish version has been launched in Bogota on April 8th. We hope many more Spanish speaking countries also take this up now.
