Know Your Water Table By: Gaurav Raj Anand BIT Patna
Water Table It’s a term related to Earth Sciences / Geological Science which means the surface of the watersaturated part of the ground, usually following approximately the contours of the overlying land surface The water table may vary due to seasonal changes in precipitation, evapotranspiration, topography and structural geology.
Provides user with live feed of the current status of Water Table in the location. Maintains an archive of the ever fluctuating data. Know your Water Table Comparisons would be made with a timeline or location wise. Has a trivial section related to the concepts of Water Table for reference.
Detection of location with the a-GPS Module of mobile device or the location detected by server of the ISP* Accesses the central server of ISRO Bhuvan Earth Observation System and derives live feed. Archive Maintenance, Timeline Comparison and making available of reference material from CGWB#. *The location detected by the server of ISP is liable to be of very low accuracy and thus the mapping would be done at much larger scale system #Central Ground Water Board Of Govt. of India.
The Primary targets shall be limited to the mobile devices users within India. The reasons includes our dependence on ISRO Bhuvan Earth Observatory System and Central Ground Water Board which have their operations limited to India.
Android OS iOS The selection of App was based on a)A greater market for Indianised Apps. b)Android has the biggest market share in India. c)Both these OS and their markets are credible, reputed and have a greater degree of safety.
A Trivial app to give basic information on the topic. Use the app just for an idea. One can know the Water Table for any location within India. One can estimate the depth of bore required to be done to access water Helps in scientific study of changing trends in Water Table.
