Beach Advisories Through Smartphones: myBeachCast
This project supports the Great Lake Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement pursuant to Public Law 111-88. Specifically, The Great Lakes Commission proposes to develop a smartphone application that provides more options and opportunities for public access to beach closure notifications and other environmental information. The beach notification system (myBeachCast) will be supplemented with other data, such as weather forecasts and wavecasts drawn from the Great Lakes Observing System, to increase value to the user and broaden the audience to include all recreational water users on the Great Lakes.
