You know those fascinating time-lapse videos showing new streets and buildings going up? The CrowdLapse app allows lots of people to contribute the necessary photos - so you don't have to keep going back every day. And CrowdLapse does all the difficult image processing for you.
Who might use it/where it might be used?:
Community and local history interest, where the built environment and the landscape are changing. There will never be another opportunity to record it while it happens.
The Market (B2B, B2C or Both):
Business to Consumers (B2C)
Sector the idea belongs to:
Why you think there is a demand for your idea?:
Developers, new communities, schools, businesses, local councils, history societies - all would be interested in a once-only opportunity to have a record of their town or building, as it's being built (- or demolished and re-built!)
Who would be the ideal customers?:
Requires interested people in a community to take the photos, and a partner organisation prepared to sponsor the running cost.
What ideas do you have to reach these customers?:
To reach potential CrowdLapsers, "word-of-mouth" on community and local history groups on social media. (Finding a local sponsoring organisation requires a little research, but costs are low so it's not a significant issue.)
How far have you developed this idea?:
So far it's an undeveloped idea. To be perfectly honest, I'm writing this because I want to try out the IdeasNest platform...
What – if any – feedback have you had for this idea so far?:
Positive response on the few occasions I've mentioned it.
What supporting material – if any - would you like to add to your proposal?:
