One of the main points of the meeting was working on the AGEO App. The app, being developed by a team from University College Dublin led by Eleni Mangina, will allow users to easily report geohazards, including geolocation, pictures and additional information that will be useful to react and prevent. This information will get stored in a database that can be accessed through the new AGEO Platform.
In the AGEO Platform, users will be able to visualize the data from all the validated reports. Furthermore, registered users will receive an API key to retrieve the data stored in the database. This way, the AGEO Platform will be a source of information about geohazards provided by users and validated by experts.
In addition, two surveys were conducted among the attendees to evaluate the state of the AGEO App and the AGEO Platform in terms of usability, features and performance. These results will be used to further improve the service before it is launched.
