The temperature maps applications will create an alternative collection of thermal data based on the contributions from volunteers in different communities.
We want to collect the exact temperature across a city in order to create temperature maps. Volunteer citizens will be asked to measure the temperature inside and outside their houses and work places at specific points in time.
Using common thermometers, volunteers will collect the data and send it back to the scientists who will analyze, aggregate and model the collected data.
Volunteers will benefit from the project as they will have a report about the best way to heat their house.
Several interactive real-time maps showing the collected data, the volunteers network and its evolution will be created and made accessible to a broad public.
Furthermore, we'll address people creativity and artistic capabilities by allowing volunteers to upload their own pictures taken at home from meteorologic phenomena in an interactive portal.
