Developing an application for the White House
A group of students led by Professor Kenneth Chiu developed the Lake Observer mobile
app, one of the tools included in the White House's "Commitments to Action on Building
a Sustainable Water Future."
The app, part of a crowd-sourcing platform, enables scientists to record and share
water quality observations across the globe.
The app is a collaboration between Binghamton graduate students Brett Taylor, John
Mihalko, and Prashant Bansal and undergraduate David Defazio, along with collaborators
at MIT, Bates College, and the Cary Institute for Ecosystem Studies.
