Developing High Performance Green Infrastructure System to Sustain Coastal Cities: A RESPONSIVE WEBSITE FOR CITIZEN-BASED BIOSWALE MONITORING [P14]

BIOSMILES is a smart site that allows residents of NYC to monitor the conditions of green infrastructure in their neighborhood. This tool comprises two components: a physical installation that includes a QR code, and a responsive platform available for free to all interested stakeholders. By using mobile devices, users are asked to input images or data that become instantly visible to the community and scientific cohort related to the site, including academic researchers, local authorities and representatives, and maintenance crew staff members. City agencies can address problems related to vandalism, health of vegetation, and additional detriments due to the presence of garbage or other solid waste. Geocoded data inform researchers and planners for site specific improvements and further expansion of the system. Community benefits include increased knowledge of vital aspects of environmental sustainability and strengthened social cohesion through a shared network to improve new distributed infrastructure approaches.
