Big Data Environmentalism

October 21, 2015

This summer, one of the many-faceted cameras that produce Google Maps Street View took on a new challenge. The camera was mounted on a raft and rowed down a river in Northern California. At the helm of the raft were several employees from the Portland-based non-profit Freshwater Trust. Their goal is not simply to map every river in the U.S., but to use the power of big data to solve the pollution problems of America's waterways.
