CyanoMap for iOS

Developer's Description

Parents, Swimmers, Fishermen, Public Health Officials: Stay informed on water quality and reduce your exposure to potent toxins. Toxic cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) are a growing health hazard. CyanoMap uses multiple satellites and massive computing power to track harmful algal blooms (HABs) and monitor lake conditions near you.PRODUCT FEATURESData collected from multiple satellites operated by international space programsComprehensive, regular data on chlorophyll-a concentrations and lake surface temperatureNear real-time information on HAB eventsCoverage of thousands of lakes across the United StatesInteractive mapsLake centric community blogsGeoreferenced lake photosCitizen scientist and crowd sourcing toolsClimate and earth data recordsHARMFUL ALGAL BLOOMSCyanobacteria are photosynthetic bacteria that can reproduce explosively in nutrient rich aquatic environments, forming blooms. Many blooms are intensified by human activity, particularly pollution from agricultural runoff. Besides being foul-smelling and unsightly, cyanobacterial blooms have the capability to generate toxins which have caused deaths in animals, serious illness in humans, and adverse economic impacts.With chronic exposure to cyanobacterial toxins now also linked to an increased risk of developing neurological disorders like amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), it is more important than ever to be aware of local water quality. CYANOMAPWe aim to provide the best possible information to help you gauge lake conditions and avoid exposure to cyanobacterial toxins.Use CyanoMap to:Assess lake conditions for health concernsSearch and browse lakes of interest to youKeep informed on the latest water quality conditionsShare member posts about any lakeShare photos of lake conditions, recreation, and sceneryConduct scientific investigations of lakesSupport lake programsCYANOMAP VS TRADITIONAL MONITORINGIn the past, water quality monitoring has always involved someone going to a water body, scooping up some water, and then testing that water. This is time consuming, expensive, and not feasible over large areas. Satellites, on the other hand, can continuously observe many lakes in their entirety, providing much more data than a few point samples scattered among a few lakes. CyanoMap allows you to access this body of data through our advanced yet straightforward delivery platform.CyanoMap is supported by NIH, NASA, NSF, and other sources. We follow an open source and transparent approach to deliver the best information to end users.
