The movie is part of a publicity series for Socrata GovStat.  In theory:

Engaging Citizens & Getting Feedback

GovStat puts you on a fast track to Gov 2.0. Your goals and the metrics to measure them not only show up on public dashboards, the dashboards invite citizens to give feedback on what they see. Citizens become partners in innovation.

Plus, you can drop in text to explain your strategies, as well as include links to other resources and provide context. With GovStat, you can go beyond being transparent and actually encouraging citizen engagement.
