We must set up an appealing homepage for the datahub, which conveys:

  • That we have various phases in the development, and are currently primarily focused on the DATA COLLECTION phase

  • That data is actively being collected in a large number of cities - and ideally we show some progress indicators

  • That this is a community effort and that people can help

Status change: Open → In Progress

I've been trying to set up something for our launch. See attached a screenshot - and here the live version.

The system loads 3 sample cities from a selected list of cities (all of them have some info, as not to show cities with barely any progress). When people click one of the phase numbers, they see a short blurb (to be properly written up). My idea is to add a decent explanatory text around the phases, and especially around how people can assist, and to link that from the homepage as well.

Input welcome.

For now this seems to be a decent structure. I'm gonna mark this initial setup as completed. If we want to make changes later then we can create a new task.
