Tic@s Innova | Where's the Water?


The Challenge | Where's the Water?

Use satellite and other data to allow farmers, landowners, and land managers in your locale to identify and visualize water resources in their surroundings.

Underground water quest for preservation

Develop a mobile/web App that allows the civil society to identify zones with vulnerable water supply and enable them to preserve it through community participation in events and environmental education.

  • General idea and pre-requisites. Why we need to initiate it and what problems and needs will be addressed once it´s implemented successfully
  • Water supply is the foundation of life existence. The cost of opportunity of the civil society not knowing their currenty vulnerability status translates in property depreciation, capital losses, de-acceleration of the economy, unemployment, environmental refugees, displacements. Once implemented successfully this App enables the empowerement of the communities through ready to use awareness, participation and education tools.


USGS National Water Information System: Web Interface.

  • USA Map (Indiana), 23 Stations
    • Superficial waters
    • Places of underground water
  • Current conditions graph
  1. Water depth
  2. Water level
  3. feet below and surface
  4. Use of the water: commercial, home use

Challenges faced:

  • Data not available in API form
  • Turn a complex calculation into a status through traffic light
