Citizens of South Florida can now help do something about seasonal flooding in their communities.Eyes on the Rise is working with the Sea Level Solutions Center (SLSC), the Office of University Sustainability and the School of Communication & Journalism at Florida International University, the Miami-Dade County Office of Resilience, and the CLEO Institute, to collect data on King tides and flooding in the community, with your help!
Com join us to participate in flood reporting (via the Eyes on the Rise app) at different locations around Miami. Participants will be given “citizen science kits” and provided with instructions on how to collect useful data by taking simple measurements of flooding. We will then reconvene at the venue (Vizcaya Village & Garage) to view the results of their work on a projected map.
