The objective of the collaboration between Professor Laurie Giddens’ Structured Systems Design course (CMIS 470) and the City of Alton was to develop a mobile application to boost tourism and economic development. This project is within the purview of the Planning and Development department and builds on momentum gained following winning the Hulu Small Business Revolution competition and the #OurAlton social media campaign. The CMIS 470 team was tasked only with developing the system requirements of the application, with which a development team would produce a working application.
