Mobile Application to Keep Watch over Our Waters
Chattahoochee Riverkeeper (CRK) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting and preserving the Chattahoochee River. They monitor the quality and water levels of the Chattahoochee River. The Riverkeeper wanted to create an app to distribute real time information about the river to its members. We developed a Minimum Viable Product for the Chattahoochee Riverkeeper.
- UX design
- iOS & Android development
We developed the Chattahoochee Riverkeeper app. It includes enhanced mapping and mobile push notifications. Push notification functionality enables automatic messaging based on bacteria alerts and water levels. The app includes charting of neighborhood watch monitoring stations along the river. Users can report a problem, take a photo and submit it to the Riverkeeper for followup. There is also easy access to view CRK events so users can learn more about becoming members.
Google Maps API
The CRK app was completed in less than 2 months. It is available in both the Apple and Google Play stores.
