The NASA International Space App Challenge that was held on 21st and 22nd April, 2012 in all the seven continents drew a great response from the world over. Of it, the Miami Team developed an app called “WET” or Water Evaluation Tool. The WET app brings Landsat5TM data and available water resource and rainfall data to a central location. From there the data will then be displayed in a map format.

The Miami chapter was sponsored by CBIL360, a leading web design and web development company based out of Miami. The event in Miami saw participants from diverse academic and work backgrounds come together and work for a staggering 36 hours non-stop to develop the app.

The idea behind the app stemmed from the fact that with the rising pressure on freshwater sources the world over, calculating water balances has become extremely critical. One of the major elements while calculating water balances is to calculate the water lost through evaporation. Currently, there is lack of data about water lost through evaporation.

The app was developed to provide precise estimates of evapotranspiration from satellite-based remote-sensing applications. Water resource planning has to be at the basin scale, and thus necessitates a basin-level approach with field-based calibration of satellite-imagery based evapotranspiration estimates.

The NASA Space App Challenge was targeted to bring the best minds together and develop solutions that can help enhance the community and the planet as a whole. As a corporate entity, CBIL360 showed its support to the initiative by sponsoring the Miami event.

That’s not it. As a web design and development company, CBIL360 (cbil360.com) will extend its support by designing the website for the Miami Team project app. According to the VP of Business Development of CBIL360, Jose Rujano,“We are very excited about the project and believe that the app can go a long way in making a difference to the way we manage our resources”.
“In a bid to spread the idea about the app, we will ensure that we make full utilization of the digital platform and create maximum awareness. The world is experiencing an acute shortage of water with every passing day. As the idea of the app spreads, more and more countries can actively measure water balances and manage their water balances more effectively”.

While the Challenge did help in throwing up some really innovative and valuable ideas, it is just the beginning of the real work of leveraging them for greater benefit.
