CITY UNVEILS NEW ‘APPS’

(Tues., Aug. 23, 2011)—Mayor Peter Carlisle announced today that eleven web and mobile applications developed by City employees and private citizens are available for immediate download from the City’s public transparency website.  

The “apps” may be located on the Citizens Analyzing Numbers Discover Opportunities (or “CAN-DO”) site at http://can-do.Honolulu.gov and include the following titles:

  • CrimeMapping
  • Disaster Alert
  • Festivals of Hawaii
  • Honolulu Map and Walking Tours
  • Honolulu Tsunami Evacuation Zones
  • Kokua Traffic
  • MapMyRide
  • Oahu Landmarks
  • TheBusHEA
  • TripIt
  • Waikiki Island Guide  

“These new applications will help people access City information quickly and efficiently,” Carlisle said. “I appreciate the employees and members of the public who made this possible.” 

“The City will introduce more ‘apps’ in the near future to help people with their daily lives,” said Department of Information Technology (DIT) director Gordon Bruce. “The public is invited to submit or recommend applications for inclusion on the site.”

Also, the City’s public transparency website has been updated to include current departmental budget data and other information. The website features new operating budgets by agency, along with capital and operating budget reports for the previous fiscal year in an easily reviewable format. Future enhancements will provide the data in downloadable formats that allow users to perform their own reviews. There is also a means to provide direct feedback to the City.

“The improvements are the result of extensive systems modernization projects completed by DIT’s staff and its partners. I am proud of what they have accomplished, and we are excited about the future,” said Bruce.
