Climate Change, Drought - need to develop innovative solutions to help with these challenges.
What it does
Calculates the potential rainfall savings realized by capturing the rainfall from a building rooftop.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Merging API's and data sources was not an easy task.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Being able to pull in disparate data sets such as:
HERE Satellite Imagery HERE Terrain Map HERE Data Layers Building Outlines Worldwide Mean Annual Precipitation Precipitation Change Forecasting for the year 2100 from the World Bank Center for Climate Change US Weekly Drought Monitor (real time) 24 Rain Forecast from NOAA (real time)
What I learned
There is a lot of potential to save rainfall, even in areas of low precipitation such as LA.
What's next for Rainfall Potential Calculator...
