SkySnap a project to solve MySkyColor challenge we aim to develop an end user application android app which will be used to capture a sky photos and get their locations then send this data to a dedicated server to collect this data and compare results to the nearest data from Aeronet (AErosol RObotic NETwork) or similar sources, and analysis this photo data this will help us to collect lots of sky photos

This project is solving the My Sky Color challenge.


Problem One in eight deaths are due to air pollution With new estimates, the WHO reports that in 2012 around 7 million people died as a result of air pollution exposure. This finding more than doubles previous estimates and confirms that air pollution is now the world’s largest single environmental health risk.In China alone, each year 500,000 deaths are caused by air pollution. There are 300 air quality monitor sites in the UK and approximately 5000 National, State and Local Air Monitoring Stations in the US, but more DATA and more public ENGAGEMENT are needed to track air pollution and build supporters in the fight against air pollution. One in eight of total global deaths are a result of air pollution exposure. Reducing air pollution could save millions of lives,


SkySnap is a mobile services to capture a sky-photo with an angle 45 this is the suitable angle to get the photo this photo colors indicate the kind of pollution on this area

Sky Colour

Deep Blue:- A very clean sky. A deep blue sky can occur when a cold front brings in clean, unpolluted air from the north. A deep blue sky can also occur when clean air from over the ocean is pushed over the land.

Medium Blue:- A medium blue sky suggests that there is a lot of water vapour in the air, but it can also be causes by coal burning power plants.

Pale Blue:- A pale blue or milky sky can suggest that there is a lot of air pollution, possibly from coal burning power plants, or it may have accumulated on a particularly still day.

Milky:- Suggests the possibility of considerable air pollution in the form of sulfur from coal-burning power plants or certain chemical plants. In some areas this condition occurs mainly in summer when the air is still and pollution accumulates. There are also natural sources of sulfur dioxide, including volcanoes and ocean plankton. Large portions of the island of Hawaii have often been blanketed by a thick layer of hazy sulfur dioxide from the Kilauea Volcano.

also it should be sent to our server to store, analysis this data and visualize this photo

it will help to keep people life in safe
