Crowdsourced app for jellyfish warnings
We’re constantly looking for innovative ways to improve the Springwise experience, and so we’re now introducing BeeLine Reader, a new technology that helps you read more quickly and efficiently. To learn more about BeeLine Reader, an award-winning startup funded by Intel Capital, see BeeLineReader.com.
We’ve seen geotagged sharks sending tweets when they approach popular beaches in Australia, and now Israel-based JellyOh is aiming to provide a similar warning system for jellyfish. Because jellyfish appear in such large numbers and cannot be physically tagged, JellyOh uses a crowdsourced app with geolocation data, so that users can tag where they’ve sighted a jellyfish. Anyone else using the app will then be notified that jellyfish are present in their vicinity. JellyOh uses a similar approach to apps that crowdsource researchable data, like the mosquito-tracking app we wrote about previously. What other useful geolocation information can be crowdsourced?…
