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.
We have developed a web app that feeds its user with real-time information regarding events that are occurring due to our changing condition of Earth like climate, pole shift and etc. We have used EONET ( Earth Observatory Natural Event Tracker); a prototype web service that provides curated natural event metadata linking to web service-enabled image sources. The area where we intend impact the most is the perspective, perspective of people towards space exploration. Most of the people on earth think that space exploration is not just waste of money but also waste of resources that could otherwise be implemented to do some "good" works. We believe that this is just wrong because majority of these people know little about space exploration and its prospects. Our app intends to connect with them in their areas of interest and slowly influence them and encourage their positivity towards space exploration.
