With the recent ecological and volatile climate issues, numerous concerns have arisen which have led to the rapid growth of sustainability sciences. In sustainability studies and related areas such as crisis data management, multiple communities need to interact and contribute data, and then have this data modeled for them in an effective manner. The National Science Foundation Advisory Committee for Environment Research and Education states that, “Because of the complex relationships among people, ecosystems, and the biosphere, human health and well-being are closely linked to the integrity of local, regional and global ecosystems.” In our work, we look towards developing a mobile application platform that allows data integration for multiple information sources that allows the user flexibility to learn about and actively participate in understanding and helping their environment. In this paper, we address our current work with the scientific aspects of this data.
