The long term vision is to integrate all pollution sampling : water, air, soil, food and drugs. #WASFDpollution
The platform is highly confidential, and is based upon a world class financial system which has been generously offered for our use.
In order to assure the historical integrity of the data samples much effort is also going into studying the use of a BLOCKCHAIN technology called ETHEREUM.
For the Phase 1 Pilot (2019) we are partnering with the BC-based Community Mapping Network.
They have advised that a successful project aka as the Langley BC pilot, has focussed on the aquifers in Langley, a Vancouver suburb – aka as the private well network atlas .
This has been a successful project and might well be extended to an area close to the heart of the CMD team, the Island Trust .
- We plan to explore this idea with the Island Trust.
- As a second project we are considering approaching BC Education to develop material which complements existing BC course curricula.
The DataMine and Taxonomy
Guided by the UN International Standards Organization (ISO) we are studying a wide variety of “Taxonomies” or classification system for sample results.
For ocean science sampling we plan to use the “Tong Classification Taxonomy” proven in the Bay of Fundy. This will be enhanced by the latest Virus and Bacteria Classifications from RAIN in Tacoma.
In Victoria for our pilot land based sampling of reservoirs, estuaries and rivers we will used the local CRD taxonomy. In this very early project the strategy is to import the existing CRD data collection datasets, to demonstrate rapid “spotlighting”.
The Hardware for the Pilot – HACH DR900
Originally we planned to have a pilot sub-project exploring the use of HACH samplers. This may or may not happen depending upon resources.
