Geovation Water Challenge winner: Fix our Water

Well done to all the finalists who took part in the Water Challenge Geovation Camp held at Ordnance Survey over the weekend 4-6 March. Over the weekend the 10 invited teams used the Innovation = Problem x Solution x Execution equation to develop their prototype venture, using design principles and focus on how they could build a sustainable business model to take their ideas forward. The judging panel selected three finalists to be offered extras support and funding through the Geovation Programme. The Fix Our Water team comprising Morag and Craig Embleton will use functionality similar to fixmystreet.com. Using a smartphone app people will record instances and crowdsource information from people such as walkers, or those who do freshwater fishing to let relevant authorities know about water problems including river pollution, flooding, overflowing drains and breach hotspots so they can take action.
