We are very happy to anounce our two Space Apps Stuttgart 2017 winning projects Tunnel-God-Detector and Whata. And Whata needs your voting support for the People’s Choice Award of the world’s biggest global hackathon!
(go to the voting page daily, search for „Whata“, Click on „vote“ and hold it until it says „voted“, that’s it, thank you! 🙂 )
During last weekend’s NASA hackathon, those two teams worked on solving global problems under this year’s theme „Earh Observation“. They tackled two different challenges and came up with excellent open-source solutions utilizing space data and create something new to help people. They both earned the global nominations and we wish them good luck in the final round where they compete against more than 1000 projects created by 20,000 people.
Please consider voting for Whata starting from 8th until 21th of May because each daily vote counts! If you like, join their teams and work together on their open-source projects.
The Whata team worked on „Where’s the Water?“ to use satellite and other data to allow farmers, landowners, and land managers in your locale to identify and visualize water resources in their surroundings. They’d like to help people find reliable water sources. They came up with providing the means with low-cost, easy-to-fabricate sensors, open-data, and existing govermental data.
