Each and every Civic Tech team that has any good idea or not so good idea—any new idea—vis-a-vis the existing implementations can just go ahead and use the same open API to do their own implementation to make sure that the particular niche is fulfilled. For example, there is a team loosely based on OpenStreetMap that did an regional analysis of supply and demand. So instead of just displaying one single pharmacy, or, later on, convenience stores, they would display this general trend and people can see the rural and urban distribution, whether it’s fair or not. And so, that’s the Civic Tech work.
