Control the pollution of your city with Air Visibility Monitoring

It's said that City of Mexico is one of the most polluted cities of the world, though it's true that it has a population of 9 million. Other cities where the air is dreadful are El Cairo, Pekin, Santigo, Los Angeles...In some of these cities, people wear masks to protect from pollution, but how can we control the pollution of our city???By reading the newspaper??

A Android application is going to help us with this problem, Air Visibility Monitoring. It works with the help of one photo. We make a photo of the sky (being careful with the trees, buildings, birds, planes, etc) and we send the photo to central servers that will analyze that photo with other data (GPS, clock, etc). In a moment, we will get the answer, moreover our data will be saved to use in the future to evaluate the environmental problems. So not only we are controling our city, but we are helping our planet.
