Crowdsourcing gas leaks with iSmellGas

I've recently become interested in crowdsourcing platforms, and how such methodologies can be applied to sustainability issues. One thing I noticed was how often I smelt the smell of gas while walking around cities. I spoke to my friends who also seemed to have smelt gas leaks, although no one had got around to reporting them. This inspired myself and a friend to create iSmellGas, a platform for crowdsourcing the location and strength of gas leaks. The idea is that gas leaks can be reported via the Android mobile app, and collected online via our web app.

Please take a look at our website and share it in any way you like, and if you have an Android phone, download our app and start reporting!
