Based on the experiences of Green Map System and China Water Pollution Map, Green Zhejiang started a collaborative interactive map development especially for the Qiantang River based on a well-known crisis platform – Ushahidi. This map provides an exchange platform for water pollution information to the general public. It could clearly show the locations of the pollutions. Users could easily use the platform online or on their cell phones to interactively obtain water pollution information and report new pollutions instantly by the online map or its iPhone or Android applications. The information includes violations, water quality monitoring results and industrial pollution sources.
