Develop an app or platform to crowd-source information for comparing changes in environmental factors, such as temperature, relative humidity, air pollution, with occurrence of symptoms of allergies and respiratory diseases. Create tools for public entry and grading of symptoms, including but not limited to cough, shortness of breath, wheezing, sneezing, nasal obstruction, itchy eyes; and geographic mapping of symptom frequency and intensity. Create a platform for comparison of symptom map with NASA provided data, with visualization options for web and/or smart phone.
Asthmap is a mobile and web application which helps the users with breathing problems to know which areas around them could be harmful to their health. They can also add geotag comments about specific problems such as red eyes, sneezing problems among others. Every user of the application can see then the markers on a map, these markers will tell him the worst areas for his disease
In order to develop the application we have used the following technologies: Android to develop the mobile application and AngularJS to develop the web app. We have also used the openweathermap.org API to retrieve weather and air quality/pollution data.
