Open Knowledge Network for Collaborative Decision Making


Imagine a world in which we harness the innovations of information technology and social learning to solve humanity's existential challenges. Current internet search tools are not designed to support local or regional spatial decision-making. Yet it's at these scales that most community decisions are made. This NSF Convergence Accelerator funded project is addressing this gap by integrating three technologies: geographic information systems, knowledge graphs, and collaborative workspaces.
