Our goal is to build a community of technical experts to support wider use of long-range public-access radio networking for remote sensing.

We're doing this based on The Things Network, an international collaboration of community networks. The network is free to access, is based on open source software, and is owned and operated by its users.

Read about our active projects here and check out our repos of interest.

We invite you to read our Wiki for more details.

If you are interested in getting involved, please join our Meetup Group.

Municipal Support for The Things Network

"The Things Network lets independent municipal leaders like myself walk down a path that was previously unavailable to government, a third way between a municipal build out of a Wide Area Network and a massive franchise agreement with a private corporation. Together with The Things Network, government may now organize in concert with a diverse coalition of partners to create and enhance services at the local community level.

"New York can lead by example, showing American technologists that there is more than one way to do an IoT rollout. They don’t need to be done from the top down, with a government franchise and loads of commoditized data.

- Manhattan Borough President Gale A Brewer
