Downloadable “creekwatch” application

November 22, 2010 § 5 Comments

Doing the rounds recently is this link to a free Creek Watch application for iPhones and iPods, developed by IBM. It allows users to upload a photo and data to a common map, recording data about flow, trash, or other observations. Developed for the State Water Control Board, most of the posted observations seem to be in the Bay Area. Let’s get some LA sites on the map!

Thanks to the various folks who forwarded this link to me, including Boyd Waters and Karina Johnston.

  • This looks amazing. I’m going to post about it on my blog, and try to get people using this in Vermont and Pittsburgh too. This looks like a great app, and I hope they add more features. (For instance, while LA Creek Freakers may not think about this, here in Vermont it is neat to know if a creek is frozen over or not… also signs of visible water pollution, extent of floods, etc).

    I might just use this as an excuse to go walk into the university preserve and visit the creek.

    Nice! I’ll try it soon.

    An app that’s related in concept is What’s Invasive.

    I helped test that What’s Invasive app, it is neat.
