Locus CEO Neno Duplan Keeping the Pulse of the Planet: Using Big Data to Monitor Our Environment
By Neno Duplan, President & CEO of Locus

Modern humans have become major data junkies. From computers to smart phones to the add-ons we continually develop and download, we intentionally buy into big data and its analysis in attempts to better understand the world we live in.

One important area that big data is not fully invested in, however, is the environment. The integration of this kind of monitoring and analysis would allow us to better understand the health of the location, region, and world around us. Because a direct correlation has been found between the environment and our physical health, there is no doubt that this information could lead to staggering improvements to our general well-being.   Continue reading...

>Droughts Reinforce California's Need for Water Management Improvements

Droughts Reinforce California's Need for Water Management Improvements

California, also known as the Golden State, has many well-known qualities that attribute to its reputation. Along with having the ninth largest economy in the world and containing the highest and lowest points in the continental U.S., California has the most variable climate in the U.S.— a title that also comes with some consequences.

Possibly the most significant consequence is California's need to become resourceful with its water supply— not entirely surprising, given the drought it's been experiencing all summer. Droughts, which unfortunately occur on a fairly frequent basis, cause the state to rely heavily on groundwater. Estimates conclude that California may rely on this source for up to 65% of its water needs.

However, California is the only state that doesn't regulate groundwater, meaning that many of these groundwater sources are over-pumped, which can cause serious, permanent damages such as subsidence (the ground sinking), and destroyed aquifers.   Continue reading...

New mobile application Locus Mobile simplifies environmental data management and field data collection process

Locus Mobile: On-the-go Data Access and Input

Locus' new mobile application, Locus Mobile will be released shortly to the Apple App store.

Locus Mobile was developed with your environmental data collection and management requirements in mind. It is a user-friendly, complete life cycle environmental data collection application, giving you the power to:

  • Configure the data collection types and information you want to collect in Locus' system
  • Synchronize data type templates to your mobile device
  • Enter data offline in the mobile app and upload on-demand
  • Synchronize the data back to the system for final review, storing, managing and reporting

By eliminating the need for manual data entry the possibility of duplicate input, inaccurate data, and the need for multiple data collection and upload steps is also eliminated. Locus Mobile improves and streamlines your environmental data collection process- reducing overall costs while increasing the quality of data captured from the beginning.

If you would like additional information about Locus Mobile, or would like to be notified when it's officially released, please click here.
