ASDENIC is an organization that partners with local farmers and citizens in northern Nicaragua to provide resources and information to ensure the safety of residents and optimize agricultural techniques. Currently, a singular, localized weather station collects useful information on patterns that can be used for indicators, yet the data requires manual processing and there is not a system in place to report the findings. The current method of information transfer is in person during weekly meetings which can be ineffective and inconsistent.
In continuation of a previous project focused on sharing water quality information, our mobile application acts as a platform for leaders to share valuable weather indicators with members of the community in real time instead of on a weekly basis. This allows community leaders to disseminate all relevant information with the community in a reliable and easy-to-digest manner. As an additional benefit, providing accessible information to community members reduces the need for large group gatherings, especially relevant during the COVID-19 pandemic.
