Abstract

Pollution in Taranto Sea must be monitored constantly to detect potential issues to public health, marine biology and economic activities in the basin. A recent environmental analysis and intervention initiative is performing a systematic and multidisciplinary research on the area. This paper describes the support software platform, which is being devised for the project. It is based on the crowdsourcing paradigm and on open source software and open data formats. The platform collects heterogeneous data from different research units and presents them as multiple georeferenced and timestamped information layers, which can be combined for advanced analysis. The overall architecture, developed tools and prospected integration of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technologies for survey sample tracking are discussed in detail.
