Reports are coming in that a public monitoring GIS app will monitor river surface pollution in India. The app is backed by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). It is called Bhuvan Ganga.
The app allows the citizens to capture and upload real-time images of the river Ganga using their smartphones. Once the image is received by the central database, the contractors in charge of the surface cleaning at that particular location are liable for any laxity.This will help monitor Ganga river pollution.
