A web based smart data management platform for monitoring water quality and creating a crowd-sourced world water quality map


Tackling drinking water issues in developing countries with well filters has largely failed due to the limited field data on how successful the filters have been in reducing disease. Part of the problem has been ineffective communication between filter users in local villages and the project managers monitoring the filters. AQUA-BRIDGE will develop a streamlined system for logging water quality and the data visualization will be developed for project managers to use in data analysis and the public to view on the web. In addition, AQUA-BRIDGE offers the water quality kits so the public can also have the opportunities to test their own water. The aggregated data from the public will create the world water quality database and it will be shared through visualization in real-time.
