From 18/10 we began to develop the solution to one of the challenges proposed by Hackathon NASA, where the chosen theme was the spot that fire. The challenge proposed the construction of a tool of crowdsourcing, with this tool the citizen can contribute to the early detection, tracking, visualization, verification and notification of forest fires. The challenge was chosen mainly because of the frequent occurrence of fires, which end up generating a great social and environmental impact, these areas harbor a great diversity of species besides the great importance in the absorption of carbon and the generation of oxygen to the atmosphere.
The objective of the solution is the early prevention of fires, which if not detected in an agile way could generate great damages.
Because of the aforementioned facts, the tool will provide significant benefits to the planet, drastically reducing the effects caused by this type of problem and making society aware of its use.
SpaceApps is a NASA incubator innovation program.
