People's Choice Semi-Finalist

Airify made it to the People's Choice Semi-Finals (Top 25)


Develop a web tool, mobile device app or add-on for existing apps or websites that leverages NASA imagery and climate data to illustrate the impacts of our changing Earth in areas of interest to you. Some ideas to explore include:

  • Use NASA Earth observations data, social media, smart phones, and Short Message Service (SMS) text phones to collect Earth observations and connect public in local, regional, and national networks to communicate about our changing planet.
  • Examine current natural events curated by NASA’s EONET (Earth Observatory Natural Event Tracker) by browsing global historical and near real-time imagery from space.
  • Upload images or other data points demonstrating visible observations and how they compare to satellite data. For example, generating early-warning alerts or validating precipitation rates reported from NASA’s Global Precipitation Measurement Mission.
  • Integrate NASA imagery with a mobile assistant to allow for dynamic image generation based on a basic request structure.

Airify is a mobile application for urban areas where the air is heavily polluted.

Using NASA data Airify shows the user the current levels of CO, SO2 and Aerosols in the air around them and gives advice on how to react when the levels are too high.

Airify motivates the user to use eco-friendly ways of transportation like bicycle or subway by showing how small actions applied by millions of users makes a big impact.

Airify automatically tracts movement of the users and knows if they travel by car/bike/subway or by foot.

Then it calculates how much emissions the user has spared the environment with his choice of transport.

Airify also connects like-minded people and rewards their eco-friendly actions with awards, ranking and certificates.

Use Airify every day and choose the eco-friendly way to travel today!

Together we can make a difference!
