Monitoring Water Points with Google Maps
Water for People is a Google Maps reporting system used to monitor and record data from tens of thousands of water points around the world.
Using smartphones community members, partners and volunteers are able to report the status of water points and whether a project is up and running, broken, or on the verge of disrepair and requiring maintenance.
Markers on the map are color-coded to instantly show if a water point has a high, medium, basic or no service.
