Method and System for Predicting Non - based on Citizen Reporting

Disclosed is a method and system for predicting non -functionality and hazards of landmarks based on citizen reporting. The method and system includes an abstract cross-linked geo-spatial layer for cross-identification, prediction of and interpretation of hazards based on reports by citizens.

In accordance with the method and system, a user uploads an image or report of a landmark depicting present condition of the landmark . The image is associated with a profile of the user and historical data related to the condition of the landmark as illustrated in the Figure.

The method and system utilizes a cross-linked geospatial layer that contains abstract classes of landmark. The abstract classes of landmarks may be one or more of , but not limited to, traffic related landmarks, commercial landmarks and nature related landmarks. The traffic related landmarks may include areas near sign boards , roundabouts, traffic lights, street cross walk ways, pedestrian bridges, handicapped access, etc. The commercial landmarks may include areas in front of pubs , factories,

shopping malls, etc. where trucks drive in and out. The nature related landmarks may include areas close to rivers, lakes, forests, etc.

Each of these classes of landmarks is associated with attributes . For example, an attribute may be one or of, but not limited to, longitude and latitude of a location of the landmark, number of lanes...
