Tuesday, August 13, 2019. 12:00PM. Webinar: Enhancing Marine Weather Awareness using Crowd-Sourced Observations from Mobile Devices. Jerry Bieszczad and Marc Shapiro, Creare. Sponsored by NOAA Central Library and the NOAA Technology Partnerships Office. More information here.
Creare has developed an Android/iOS smartphone app (WeatherCitizen) for collecting and distributing crowd-sourced environmental observations in a marine environment. In collaboration with Stony Brook University, we recently performed a field trial of WeatherCitizen on Long Island Sound collecting observations from 10+ geospatially distributed mobile devices and disseminating data-driven insights in real-time. This presentation will provide an overview of the development and deployment of WeatherCitizen, an overview of the Long Island Sound field trial, and the roadmap of WeatherCitizen into the future.
