Integrate NASA Earth science data and citizen science data to learn more about the connections between human, animal, and environmental health.


Making the world a better place by encouraging people to plant more trees.

There is clear evidence that greenhouse gases (GHG) have had damaging effects on the Earth, such as
global warming.
Man can contribute in a way that attempts to minimize the impacts of climate change.
In recent years, environmental problems have become increasingly evident, leading to an increase in
people's awareness of these problems. As a result, the search for ways to mitigate the impacts that
contribute to Climate Change has become ever larger.
Activities of our day-to-day are responsible for the occasional emissions of these gases. 
Performing daily activities, for example, is able to release into the atmosphere a few tons of 
carbon dioxide (CO2), even without being an industrial process.
That is why it is fundamental that society as a whole take actions that contribute to the reduction
of GHG emissions, the main factor that intensifies global warming.
Our application calculates the amount of CO2 emitted by people and suggests how many tree seedlings
should be planted to generate the compensation. In a way users can be encouraged to use the 
application and contribute to the environment by being socially responsible. We use NASA maps 
and weather data to show which is the best tree seedling and which is the best planting site based
on the person's location (GPS).
