San Francisco based online news site Hoodline has launched widgets called Neighbourhood Kits that use content from the website to provide information about an area. Real estate agents can embed these widgets on their websites, allowing prospective buyers easy access to information about the area they are looking to move to. The kits offer users information on everything from where to eat and where their kids can play in the park, to local development news and how to get involved in community projects.

Value for Dubai

If such a portal is implemented by Dubai Municipality in partnership with Dubai Tourism, residents can make more informed decisions on where to live knowing which areas have offerings that best suit their family's needs. Tourists as well will be able to make the best choices on which areas are most likely to offer activities they plan to do in Dubai.
