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.

Brief introduction of EyeSign

  • EyeSign is a web-based application developed on IBM Bluemix using database from EONET and IBM Insights for Weather
  • The purpose of EyeSign in to provide real natural event data, such as disaster, to our customer in order to make better decisions and reduce cost.
  • Our target customers are farmers, Real estate developers, and Government decision-makers.

Main Functions of our EyeSign

In our design, EyeSign will perform the following functions

  • The left hand side of the UI is a filter to specific natural events.
  • The types of event are listed beneath the search bar
  • After selected a specific natural event, EyeSign will load related natural events in one of our database and display on the map
  • Every single point is click-able, and each point will pop up a table to show detail of the clicked event
  • Ideal:
  • -When dragging the map, and zoom to a specific size, the other database that contains weather condition will perform logical comparison
