Get sensing and crowdsourcing environmental data using sensors
In GeoSense fieldwork, teams will be assigned to collect environmental data in the selected park.
Challengers are to deploy sensors in the park to track environmental variables such as Temperature, Humidity, Air Quality, Light, Sound etc. for a minimum of 12 hours. Challengers may collect such data from 7am to 7pm on any day before the given GeoSense deadline.
( Sensors provided may require some assembly & troubleshooting alongside workshop training and help materials that will be made available. Challengers are not restricted to collect data using only the sensors provided by SGC, and you may collect more environmental data if you so desire beyond the above minimum specification. )
Such crowdsourced data shall be uploaded by Challengers for sharing amongst all the participants for the sake of visualisation and analysis, in conjunction with other data of the surroundings e.g. roads, terrain, proximity to water features, distance to housing etc. that will be made available via an online GIS platform.
( Challengers are not restricted to use only the GIS platform made available/ accessible by SGC, but may use any other GIS tools/ software to complete their Challenge. )
Use a myriad of other data, in addition to the crowdsourced environmental data, to create geospatial visualisation and analysis.
( Challengers are not restricted to use only the data provided by SGC, but are free to source for any other types of data within permissible means - e.g. Visit data.gov.sg for more details. )
More instructions and information
will be released to all Challengers
after the #SGC2015 registration
deadline closes on 31 May 2015
