Planning & Engagement Modes

Key Concepts in Podaris:Plan and Podaris:Engage

Podaris has two distinct interfaces, intended for different audiences:

  • Podaris:Plan -- for planners, engineers, and other experts. In Podaris:Plan you can rapidly yet accurately create new infrastructure scenarios and do basic cost/benefit.

  • Podaris:Engage -- for engaging non-expert stakeholders, who can leave georeferenced comments on each scenario.

Both interfaces show the real-time state of the project, allowing dynamic feedback between experts and stakeholders. Only users with edit or admin permission can access the Plan interface; everyone else sees the Engage interface.
