i think it looks awesome as of now, @marcellamaki . The user flow may be this: when you open a map (shared via a url by someone), that description box is shown -- just like a description under an artwork in the museum. Then you can click on it to minimize it to a tag/label shape sticked to the bottom of the screen. That "tag" may have a bright color so that the user won't forget it's there. And it could have a question mark or an "i" circle that indicates it is an informative entity. (By "i circle" i mean the symbol that you usually expect to click on "for more info")

Hi everyone! I'm a computer science student currently at UT Austin. I think this project is incredible, and look forward to helping in anyway!

Hiya folks, I wanted to share the culmination of my work for my winter-nship in the form of two repos: magicbox-site-routing and magicbox-download-roads, these two repos offer powerful open-source geospatial analysis by converting road data from OpenStreetMap to tree and graph structures to compute distances between large sets of points efficiently, whether it be a straight line or based on a country's road network infrastructure.
The site routing repository has a notebook that demos how to use the straight line distance function I wrote on any two sets of geographic coordinates
I hope that these tools can serve as a springboard for powerful data analytics and aid MagicBox's mission, I had a fantastic time working with UNICEF this past winter and hope to continue contributing to this project!

Hello everyone! My name is Chantal and I'm interested in contributing to the MagicBox platform. I'm just a college student who's familiar with the C-languages, R, and Python. Is there any way I can work on MagicBox even though I'm not a professional developer yet?

@MCTTAN
Oh my... I just noticed that this chat hasn't been active since April.
I'm gonna see if there are other ways to reach out to you guys.

@mikefab
@MCTTAN , our work continues, we just haven't communicated here in a while. You're welcome to work on stuff that interests you!

@MCTTAN
Thank you for the reply back.
I think I like the maps prototype project. I'm into data visualization.

One thing we're working on is open source for data driven decision making in education policy, with a focus on Sierra Leone.

@mikefab :O
That one also looks interesting.

The workshop idea sounds very interesting. I don't know any of the tools you listed; I just know R and ArcGIS, and trying to learn more about D3js.

Hi everyone! It has been a while.
Recently I joined the UNICEF Innovation Team and Venture Fund as an Open Source Technical Advisor. I am happy to return back to the UNICEF team to support our open source work!
I am going to try to bring a little more activity to this chat.
You can also access this room from other clients now too. You can now join from IRC, Matrix, or Riot.

UNICEF and Generation Unlimited, the International Telecommunication Union, UNDP, and the Office of the Special Adviser to the Secretary-General, on Digital Cooperation, and other UN partners organized this event featuring three multistakeholder dialogues focused thematically on the need to connect, respect, and protect all people in the digital age.
