GLOBE Observer App Now Includes New Mosquito Habitat Mapper!
The GLOBE Observer App, which is available in iOS and Android formats, allows anyone in a GLOBE country to enter data about clouds directly into the GLOBE database. Now it includes a new tool – a Mosquito Habitat Mapper. This tool supports citizen scientists in efforts to map, count, and identify mosquito larvae found in breeding sites!
In March 2017, version 1.2 of GLOBE Observer was released; this includes updates that allow Observers to provide new data points on sky color, visibility, cloud properties and opacity, and surface conditions.
The app update also supports multiple languages. Based on input from users, an optional notification system was added that lets Observers know when their local solar noon is occurring and when a satellite is flying over so they can compare their measurements with NASA measurements.
Join us and become a GLOBE Observer. Just download the GLOBE Observer App and use it to observe the environment wherever you are. When you download the app, the new Mosquito Habitat Mapper will automatically update to include the new tool.
