Participatory sensing has been advocated as a decentralized mechanism for getting up-to-date data about a city. However, this leads to data flowing only in one direction, from the citizen to the data collector. We advocate closing the loop, by creating a platform that aggregates participatory data, visualizes it, and provides utility from the data. We argue that this will lead to greater participation, as well as greater interest in various aspects of a city that can be collaboratively mapped.
