Welcome to Rmap4RainBO crowdsourcing application developed by MEEO S.r.l
, in the RainBO LIFE project
, in collaboration with ARPAE
starting from the Rmap
The purpose is to involve citizens in uploading the observed meteorological phenomenon (section 'PARTICIPATE/Add present weather'), giving priority to the most significant events (tornado, thunderstorm, heavy rain, etc.), in order to share ('SHOW DATA' section) information updated in real time and distributed throughout the territory, as if the territory was covered by a dense network of sensors on the present weather .
The Rmap4RainBO application is moreover an experimental platform addressing citizens and institutions with the aim to gather feedback on the territory in terms of observed impacts (section 'IMPACT / Add Impact') due to hydraulic hydrogeological weather events (eg floods, fallen trees or icy road). The impact codification, so far considered in the present application, has been defined within the project, since any code of them has not yet been found at regional or national level, but it can obviously be reviewed and updated after further comparisons with the competent institutions. The goal is to start building a database of historical data on the recorded impacts in order to correlate them to regional meteorological alerts. The weather phenomena codification is based on the WMO – World Meteorological Organization
The visualization of the geolocation information ('SHOW DATA' section) is useful to understand where significant phenomena are occurring and what damages have been reported on the interested area.
To access the section 'PARTICIPATE' you need to log in after a registration that requires username, password and email address.

Thanks for your partecipation!
