Floating Data Wetland


Done in collaboration students and members of the local community, this is a floating island housing sensors and lights, along with native plants and grasses. The system measures water quality and in turn changes the color of the lights (red = bad water quality, blue = good). In addition, anyone with an Internet connection or mobile device can receive real-time information from the floating wetland, as the data is shared openly online.
