Hard at work on Mobile Oil Reporting App

Many people have been working really hard to develop a mobile app to help crowdsource events associated with the Deep Water Horizon Oil Spill. This, along with the back-end is still in process. The plan is to allow both geotagged, timestamped pictures and videos to be uploaded, along with various details like oil thickness. Also, this would provide information of relevant twitter feeds, as well as information for those planning to volunteer. If interested in more information, you can go to our Project Page.
