Crowd-Sourced, Open-Source, Power to the People!
Real-time decentralized global propagation, notification, and analysis tools for the most comprehensive, cross-domain, uncensored environmental data-set ever assembled – ClimateViewer.
Discover how natural and artificial phenomena, from past to present, underground to outer space… might affect the quality and length of our futures, and form teams to improve life on Earth.
Check out Jim Lee, creator of ClimateViewer, explaining our project.
ClimateViewer is Open-Source beta software, meaning this site is a work in progress. You can already check out our Cesium-powered 3D globe, our Leaflet-powered Mobile app, and report your own events using our Ushahidi-powered Crowd-Source Reporting app.
We are diligently working to combine all three apps into one, add user accounts, social media style 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 ClimateViewer, the world is at your finger tips!
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 ClimateViewer users can spread the word, form teams, and respond to emergencies.
Visualize complex data-sets like maps, lists, and feeds from the millions of open-source databases available to ClimateViewer 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.
ClimateViewer puts the Change in Climate Change! Create teams to respond to severe weather events, technological disasters, life-threatening pollution, or use ClimateViewer 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. ClimateViewer 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. ClimateViewer is that tool.
