HelpMeSee, a global campaign to eliminate cataract blindness, has successfully tested a pre-release version of its GIS-GPS app for community mobilization. The mobile app, currently for use on Android devices, will allow community health workers to better locate patients, map the incidence of cataract blindness, and connect patients to partner specialists who can provide care. The system can define the geographic market for each clinic location and maintain epidemiologic information on the prevalence of cataract blindness. It will also integrate with the campaign's surgical reporting system to monitor patients and validate successful outcomes.

Today in Shanghai, there are a series of networks of different instrument types [e.g., automatic weather stations (AWS), weather radar, met towers, wind profilers, lightning mapping systems, remote sensing systems] that provide dense observations through a network of networks. That network of networks is referred to as Shanghai's Urban Integrated Meteorological Observation Network (SUIMON). SUIMON covers the whole of the Shanghai metroplex and nearby seashores, which includes major transportation facilities-notably the Shanghai container port, the largest in the world, and Pudong International Airport.
