Artha.zone’s features crowd source and manage the “creation-review-publication-evolution” as an open participatory process using open data (e.g. SMRT, Federal, MORPC). The resulting Knowledge Assets (web content on Arthapedia) bridge the ‘data-knowledge’ gap. Knowledge Assets synthesize big/structured and slow/unstructured data visually with meta data and stories along with human interpretation into a form suitable for advocacy, innovations and decision making. Community beneficiaries and crowd-sourced collaborators (students in service courses, professionals, retirees, and volunteers) co-create in feedback loop keeping knowledge current. Thus communities that often face resource shortages can use curated knowledge to advance locally. Individuals and students can link their own service contributions and add to their resume.
