Don’t ever have to go a thousand miles to get water – use Mairuwa!
Mairuwa locates and maps water resources and stores a database of these resources thereby allowing users to access this information from various platforms – web and mobile (web, java application, SMS and over time – android).
It also allows the regulating body (in this case, Lagos State Water Corporation) to map out problematic areas and this will in turn, aid water distribution.
We will used crowd-sourced data, SMS longcodes and keywords, the web interface will also contain realtime maps while all the interfaces will give you the nearest water resource and it’s distance from your location while also showing you its ease of sccess. We will be implementing GIS technologies as well as traditional programming languages.
