Abstract [en]

Deficient public infrastructure always causes significant complications to citizens’ daily travelling. However, it is hard for authorities to discover all the problems that suddenly occur on the road. To address these issues, one direction is to develop a system that allows citizens to report a problem quickly, so that the authorities could receive the information timely and solve it as soon as possible.

In our project, instead of developing everything from scratch, we have decided to use Instagram and FixaMinGata as components. Instagram is a smart phone application that is used to share a photo with public. We use it to make a report which related to potholes, broke street lights and other similar problems.  FixaMinGata is a Swedish website that allows people to publish infrastructure problem reports online and forwards them to the authorities.

Thus, the main purpose of our project is to make an interface between Instagram and FixaMinGata. It involves using the information that extracted from Instagram to create and post a report on FixaMinGata and to forward the feedback from authorities to Instagram users as well.

This project runs under Ubuntu 12.04, and we have selected Python as the programming language. Besides these development environments, some additional modules are imported as well, such as Bottle, Selenium, Poster and Mechanize.
