We tag civic tech projects with the issue area or domain they address, their format, and their scale. This is an evolving taxonomy, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you see a missing area of work addressed by civic tech projects.
We’ve been gradually introducing this taxonomy, so many of the projects already included in the Civic Tech Field Guide are not yet tagged. If you’d like to help by adding tags, you can do so by creating an account and editing a project Listing.
