Climate change is a real problem, regardless of anyone’s belief of its cause. Water, above all else, is our most precious resource, and it should be conserved whenever possible. Without water, we as humans can only survive 3 days! The mission at EveryDrop is to provide applications for both the public and the government agencies a resource to both curb water waste and promote water conservation.
Los Angeles is one of the most beautiful destinations in the world. Being located in Southern California, however, has its challenges. By enabling the EveryDrop platform, cities and counties can put the power of the crowd to work for them. Water waste can be identified quickly, allowing conservation of every drop possible. By using our platform, in conjunction with Esri’s GIS technology, the power of big data comes alive. Water waste can now be isolated, quantified and studied. Education is tantamount in the effort to conserve water, and with the help of EveryDrop it’s easier than ever. We have an obligation to be good stewards of our planet’s resources, and EveryDrop helps in accomplishing that goal.
The EveryDrop Water Platform is an end-to-end solution built on the Esri stack of ArcGIS products. The solution is made up for four main components: 1) Smartphone Applications for Citizens; 2) a web based Management Console for the Smartphone Applications; 3) end-to-end integration into Esri's ArcGIS Server and/or ArcGIS Online; and 4) an Operation Dashboard to monitor and visualize water operations.
When citizens download the free EveryDrop Smartphone Application, you put the power of water conservation in the palm of everyone's hand. Beautifully designed and integrated with Esri's ArcGIS SDKs for Android & iOS, users are enabled to:

You can even customize the smartphone applications from the Console. Here are just a few of the many features included:
