ClimateViewer, Save the World!
Climate Viewer is Open-Source social-media project with a focus on disaster response, pollution cleanup, and public education. Though our project is a work-in-progress, you can already check out our Cesium-powered 3D Globe , our Leaflet-powered Mobile map, and report your own events using our Ushahidi-powered Crowd-Source Reporting Map.
We are diligently working to combine all three apps into one, add user accounts, social media feeds, a bunch of cool data-views, and allow teams of concerened citizens to build communities, chat and video conference, and solve our planetary problems. People helping people empowered by technology, this project will truly change the world!
With Climate Viewer, the world is at your finger tips!
Monitor Your World
Track pollution sources and use real-time atmospheric sensors to monitor your air quality and see pollution affect your weather. Snapshot your screen and store your "view" in your own personal archive, then share your snapshot with others! Report health-threatening technological disasters like radiation releases, chemical spills, and even rogue geoengineering so other Climate Viewer users can spread the word, form teams, and respond to emergencies.
See Data in New Ways
Visualize complex data-sets like maps, lists, and feeds from the millions of open-source databases available to Climate Viewer users. Create your own remixes, choose how to view your data, and share your "package" with others by publishing it on our server! We call these packages "Nobjects," or Network Objects. Each Nobject you create can also be downloaded, sent over an email, and viewed privately by the recipient! Imagine the possibilities! Nobjects can be viewed on our 3D Globe, 2D map, in a Twitter-style feed, or on our super-cool graphing software.
Team Planet on Steroids
Climate Viewer puts the Change in Climate Change! Create teams to respond to severe weather events, technological disasters, life-threatening pollution, or use Climate Viewer to organize your activist or volunteer organization. With powerful user-created map tools, global, team, and private chat rooms, video conferencing, and event scheduler, your team will be prepared to tackle anything! Set your goals, track results, be the change!
Our internet has set us free. Open-source technology and You make this possible. Climate Viewer gives power to the people: See a problem? Map it, Mark it, Make it Change. We are creating a new social media, giving you tools to create communities that help other people directly. Knowing is half the battle, and having a tool to fix it is priceless. Climate Viewer is that tool.
