The Disaster Prediction App

$119,910

2,208

GOAL: This App will combine numerous models of disaster precursors to warn of times when large earthquakes are more likely to occur.

WHO: Ben Davidson founded the Mobile Observatory Project [right here on Kickstarter!], SpaceWeatherNews.com, Suspicious0bservers.org and advanced the field of solar-terrestrial physics by demonstrating the sun can trigger earthquakes. Dr. Kongpop U-yen has developed similarly successful models of disaster prediction using space weather and planetary geometry.

WHAT: Ben and Kongpop are teaming up to bring us the Disaster Prediction App. Imagine the event notification functions of current earthquake apps and add the forecast element that you get from a weather app. Global alerts, and eventually, location-based disaster risk scores can be sent to our phones to warn us of times when the earth is unstable.

In addition to earthquakes, this App will send forecasts of tropical storm formation and solar storms that could affect electrical grids, satellites, and transportation and telecommunication.

WHY: We expect that eventually this App will save lives.

The T-Shirt and Hoodie Designs have not been finalized, but this is essentially what they will look like:

Risks and challenges

The primary challenges will be in creating the software application and bringing it to market through the standard media (i.e.. Apple App Store).

The coding for the data analysis will already be complete before the project begins - those codes are pre-existing pieces of the puzzle. Where our programming costs come in 1) taking these programs from a command-driven program on a computer to an automated website function that populates scores on its own, 2) building the App that pulls this data, derives the total score, and sends notifications to your phone.

I am hopeful that users will also be able to watch our videos through the App, and that I will be able to send notifications in text form in addition to the automated notifications that are based on the user's settings.
