Crowdsourcing Istanbul
Istanbul, Turkey
Active since 2016-01

Derived from the active participle of the verb أَحَاطَ‎ (ʾaḥāṭa) muhit is “to surround, enclose, contain, encircle, know completely”. The word is used in Turkish to mean both “neighborhood” and “community,” sometimes interchangibly. Muhit.co is a platform we developed that uses crowdsourcing and data mining to share citizen-generated data with neighborhood representatives and municipalities to improve the quality of life in cities, deployed in several districts of Istanbul.
