FourTeachers‘s goal is to create a searchable database of Texas teaching standards (called The Key); a lesson plan bank that allows teachers to upload or search for lesson plans (called The Cabinet); and a profile-based social network that allows teachers to search for and communicate with other teachers (called The Lounge). The goal of The Desk is to help novice teachers get support and lessons to help make them better teachers and stay in the classroom, while experienced teachers get to track changing national and state standards by uploading their time-tested lessons.
WaterMe is a global and free to access drought monitoring and information service using NDWI data (measuring the amount of water stored in vegetation) extracted from freely available MODIS data supplied by NASA. The aim is to store the previous 10 years data and provide timely updates through a web interface using an open mapping solution, an API allowing further processing by interested parties, and an SMS gateway for the end users using basic mobile telephony.
