A new open source app to collect odour complaints

article odourcollect2   Ibercivis is collaborating with the researcher Rosa Arias in the creation of the app Odour Collect. This application for smartphones will make available to the citizens a tool to report nuisance due to odours by filling a simple questionnaire. In this experiment on people's science, the volunteers will become human sensors to build an odour map. No matter where you live.

   At the same time, the users can actively participate by analysing the available data or accesing the historic record of data. Reports of each episode can be visualized and users can share experiences with other users, monitoring the evolution of an odour plume or acting in case of an odour alert.


   The app Odour Collect will be available on September 2016 and will be based on the German norm VDI 3940:2008 and the future norm CEN 16841, together with the experience of Ibercivis on experiments with people's science.
