The Challenge | Don’t Forget the Can Opener!

Create an easy-to-use way for people to develop their own, custom checklists – both items and plans – for specific kinds of disasters. Use NASA images, videos, or data visualizations to illustrate each disaster type, to help people understand how to prepare.


A mobile application that saves lives by notifying flood risks and provides Safe routes, tips and tricks and survival Guides.



Flood is the most dangerous natural disaster in the planet. According to the Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters , in 2016, floods killed the most people (4,731), Where the N°1 Cause of Death in a flood will be drowning and Trauma.


Our solution will be a mobile application that will notify the citizens about flood, its intensity and its dangers, illustrating and simulating its movements and developments in real time.
The app will provide useful offline survival tips and tricks and it can be a tracking tool to be fully prepared for such a disaster.
Suggesting the safest routes to evacuate the place and how to protect ourselves from floods in future events.
The Application is easy to use, can be used online and offline and it is fast and reliable.

In The future, A Machine Learning Algorithm can be deployed to predict floods where it will process RAW LANDSAT, SRTM, NOAA images and other Satellite imageries to produce DEMs (Digital Elevation Models), identify soil infiltration rate, predict precipitation rates, predict water levels , extra…
The algorithm will also treat past flooding data
