How to build an app to automatically track climate change, global warming, and ocean acidification on mobile app
Google announced today that it is working with National Geographic to build a web app that will automatically detect changes in the Earth’s atmosphere and oceans that could lead to ocean acidity and sea level rise.
“We’re building a tool that will give users an intuitive interface to automatically and accurately monitor ocean acidities and other important environmental changes around the world,” Google Product Manager Jason Blaser said in a blog post.
The project, which is being called Klook, is a collaborative effort between Google and National Geographic, with Google’s support.
Blaser called Klist a “first of its kind.”
The Klook app will be available on Google Play and the Google Play Store in the coming weeks.
Blasen said the goal is to have Klook in every app that Google makes, and to eventually bring it to other platforms.
Blaser said that Google will release Klook software for all Android devices.
He said it would be up to app developers to decide whether to include Klook or not.
Blasers statement also said that the app would work on both iOS and Windows Phone devices.
Blase said that he and his team are hoping to have the app in other Google Play store app stores in the near future.
The Klist app will use the same Google Map API, Blaser explained, that allows users to map their location using Google Maps.
Blasing said that Klook will also work with Google Now on Android devices, which could allow users to track the time they’re at a certain location.
Blasin also said the Klook application will use geocoding and Google’s cloud services, but he didn’t provide details.
Blasen’s announcement comes at a time when the company is also trying to reduce carbon emissions by implementing climate change mitigation measures.
Blases stated that Google has already reduced its carbon emissions from the last five years, but it is still “very much a work in progress.”
Blaser also said Google would be offering a free version of Klook that will include some additional features, including climate change tracking.
Google said it will make its app available to download for free to Google Play users who are willing to sign up for a Google Plus account.
Blasers statement does not mention a release date for the Klist update, but Google has previously said that it would launch Klook for free on the Android platform in early 2018.
Google has also been working on an app for Google Glass that will help users keep track of their health, but this project may not come to fruition until later in 2018.
