Preempting Climate Change


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.

Mapping existing data with live data to predict climate instability and change. Then feeding information back to open source data center connected to government and UN agencies then providing preemptive strategic capacity to overting humanitarian disaster and assist in allocating life saving ressources.

Resources Used

Past and current data sets mapping extreme temperature, precipitation, cloud formation and wind directions, to help create a early warning hazard system.
