IGRAC has recently launched an updated version of GGMN - Groundwater Monitoring app. This app enables users to georeference and register groundwater monitoring stations and groundwater level monitoring data in the Global Groundwater Monitoring Network (GGMN) Portal. The app is now available for Android devices and can be downloaded here.
To start using the app, first you have to register at https://ggis.un-igrac.org/account/signup/ and then send us an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can set up a virtual space within the GGMN app for you to store your wells. Afterwards you will be able to create new groundwater monitoring stations and periodically add new readings.
In addition, you could use this same account to access to the Global Groundwater Information System (GGIS) platform as well.
The GGMN App was inspired by MyWell, which is a smartphone and SMS app developed in the framework of the MARVI (Managed Aquifer Recharge and Sustaining Groundwater Use through Village-level Intervention) project funded by the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR). In the MARVI, MyWell assists ‘groundwater informed’ volunteers, or Bhujal Jankaars (BJs) in the monitoring of groundwater levels, rainfall, checkdam water level and water quality in rural communities in India.
