    Online surveys using GIS

    I'm interested in developing an online survey using GIS. Does anyone know of any examples of online surveys that use GIS? I want the users to have control over the maps so I began learning MapServer and OpenLayers.

    Thanks

    That is very interesting....

    I have had an interest in doing something similar... i am play around with a google map hack but i haven't implemented any thing yet. My thoughts is to collect digital post-it notes on SWOT.

    let me know what you come up with.

    As a first step, have you thought about creating KML/KMZ files, then hosting them on your municipality's website for Google Earth users to check out?

    Also, what about using Flickr? Collaboration is relatively easy there (assuming everyone becomes a Flickr member).

    What are you trying to get using GIS? I love the idea of users providing location data - there is so much a map can tell. Do you want people to place buildings / uses on a map? Or points on a map?
    Now I'm curious!
