How's the Beach? water quality app released

How's the Beach app screenshotIAN and the University of South Carolina unveiled the "How's the beach?" water quality prediction app last month. Using data provided by the NOAA National Weather Service, the app provides daily forecasts of beach bacteria concentration at 31 locations along the Myrtle Beach, South Carolina "Grand Strand". The app also provides the latest available bacteria monitoring data, and the current advisory status as issued by the South Carolina department of Health and Environmental Control. We are currently working to expand the app to a new area near St. Petersburg, Florida. The app is available for free on iTunes and the Google Play Store.
