PanDa, the Bay Area Pandemic Dashboard, is the best tool available specifically for Bay Area residents. This collaboration between Code for San Francisco, Open Oakland, and Code for San Jose rigorously curates the most complete Bay Area data resource possible while surfacing insights using metrics that directly impact residents’ lives during Covid. 

Project members are developing open source web scrapers for capturing data being posted in nine different ways to nine different county websites. Front end contributors are developing beautiful interactive data visualizations designed by UX Design contributors.

Water the Trees

Active

Water The Trees is a platform that crowd sources tree planting and maintenance. We believe in the power of trees to restore natural habitat for animals, insects, and fauna. We are interesting in continuous massive tree planting events to help sequester carbon and stabilize climate change extremes.

Water the Trees is an open source project run by tree planting volunteers at Sierra Club, Public Works, and developers at Code for San Francisco.

ShelterTech

Spin-off

Less than half of nearly 28,000 people experiencing homelessness in the Bay Area have reliable access to the internet.

ShelterTech is a technology-focused nonprofit organization making it easier for this community to connect with resources that can help them address their challenges.

Begun as a project at Code for San Francisco, ShelterTech spun-off into it's own organization in 2006 and has grown to a volunteer organization with an annual budget over $100k.

Adopt-a-Drain

Spin-off

Launched in October 2016, the Adopt a Drain Program enables San Francisco residents to "adopt" one of the City's 25,000 storm drains, keeping it free of debris. While helping to reduce localized flooding, the program also fosters community engagement by encouraging San Franciscans to take an active role in improving their neighborhood. Sign up and adopt a drain!

This project was adopted in-house by the SF Public Utilities Commission but could still use your contributions!

Intentional Walk

Active

Intentional Walk is a community program based on the baseball strategy of deliberately walking an opposing player to first base.

 

In partnership with the SF Department of Public Health, we released the proof of concept application, welcoming over 400 users into the 2020 pilot and exceeding DPH’s goal for the initial test.

The 2021 program is back by popular demand and under development with new features for data collection and a better user experience.

Lane Breach

On Hold

Lane Breach was started by local cyclists concerned about the safety of biking in the city. This project created an app to quickly document bike lane violations and integrate reports into San Francisco's 311 system. 

This project is on hold during COVID, but will resume with data analytics into local cycling conditions and the effect of specific bike-lane types on cycling safety.

WeVote

Spin-off

Plan your entire ballot in 6 minutes!

We are creating easy-to-use tools that cut through the election noise and help voters easily understand what's on their ballot. Our open platform empowers voters to create and share voter guides that aggregate information and opinions across personal networks. So you can help your friends be better voters too.

WeVote started at Code for San Francisco in 2014, and spun-off into an independent, open-source ballot information system.
