I work in the resilience space and would be interested to see if it'd be possible to:
- develop sensors that track micro-climates in the District to monitor the urban heat island effect and in turn direct mitigation investment (maybe could be a smartphone app that logs temperature?)
- create an app where citizens can take pictures of localized flooding that will immediately be routed to local agencies so improvements to stormwater and green infrastructure can be targeted in smaller-scale problem areas
Community: are these realistic ideas? Government folks: would this data be helpful? Please contact me if interested in teaming up!
All the best,
