This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Geofairy, which is led by Liping Di and developed by Ziheng Sun and Gil Heo, won the third place in the Geoappathon competition which has more than 250 individual participants.
Geofairy succeeds to collect and display nine kinds of the mostly used geospatial information: vegetation, weather, precipitation, atmosphere, soil moisture, altitude, agriculture, land cover and land use. The information comes from different data providers. Geofairy performs as a hub gathering and reformatting information and sharing with users.
Location based is the major character of Geofairy. The location could be the current device location or any location manually specified by users. Users could know precisely and timely what is going on at their interesting locations through Geofairy. The information search in Geofairy applies GEOSS (Global Earth Observation System of Systems) resource registry as database. The huge amount of data and systems archived in GEOSS can provide public with a complete overview about the available information of the target location.
Geofairy supports users to view geoinformation in three different types of view mode: table, chart and map. Users can freely switch among the three view modes and easily discover interesting information from Geofairy.
Above all, Geofairy is a mobile App gathering geospatial information from distributed providers, organizing information and share with users in an intuitive way in which people could check all the information with only one single click.
