Loss of the Night citizen science project
The best part about the Atlas website is that it includes three citizen science projects to ensure that future photos are cataloged, and to find other older images "hidden in the dark of the database".
Dark Skies of ISS allows citizens to sort images between different types: Images of cities, images of stars, and other images. It requires no previous knowledge, and is only available online. It is the simplest of the three projects.
Night Cities aims to allow citizens to apply their lay knowledge of local and international geography. The project shows paired images of cities with maps. Project volunteers identify points in the night images and match them to positions on the maps. With this help we can generate light maps of cities. Lost at Night is the stiffest challenge for citizens with good geographical knowledge of a region. Their goal is to identify which city is in an image without any identification. The position of the cities in this case is only known to within about 500 km.

Hong Kong Air Pollution : iPad iPhone App http://www.theairyoubreathe.com/apps/ Hong Kong Air Pollution iPad App
The AirYouBreathe displays the current air quality in Hong Kong using a variety of different air pollution indexes from around the world.
The pollutant information from multiple reporting stations around Hong Kong is run through the air pollution indexes of other countries to produce a more accurate picture of the current air quality.
Users can view the pollution levels quickly on a map or in a table view, and drill down into more specific information about how certain countries would regard the current air quality in Hong Kong. Several nations provide specific warnings to their citizens in the event the air quality reaches a certain warning level. Information is update hourly so people can plan their outdoor activities at times when pollution levels are minimized. DOWNLOAD iPad iPhone App

Marine Traffic https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ Marine Traffic
This web site is part of an open, community-based project. It is dedicated in collecting and presenting data which are exploited in research areas, such as but not limited to the following:
-Study of marine telecommunications in respect of efficiency and propagation parameters
-Simulation of vessel movements in order to contribute to the safety of navigation and to cope with critical incidents
-Interactive information systems design
-Design of databases providing real-time information
-Statistical processing of ports traffic with applications in operational research
-Design of models for the spotting of the origin of a pollution
-Design of efficient algorithms for sea path evaluation and for determining the estimated time of ship arrivals
-Correlation of the collected information with weather data
-Cooperation with Institutes dedicated in the protection of the environment
-It provides free real-time information to the public, about ship movements and ports, mainly across the coast-lines of many countries around the world.
The initial data collection is based on the Automatic Identification System (AIS). We are constantly looking for partners to take part in the community. They will have to install an AIS receiver and share the data of their area with us, in order to cover more areas and ports around the world. As well as viewing in a web-browser there are Apps for most mobile devices.

Flightradar24 combines data from several data sources including ADS-B, MLAT and FAA. The ADS-B, MLAT and FAA data is aggregated together with schedule and flight status data from airlines and airports to create a unique flight tracking experience.
The primary technology that we use to receive flight information is called automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B). There is also an App for most mobile devices
Google Trends http://www.google.com/trends/ Google Trends
Google Trends is a public web facility of Google Inc., based on Google Search, that shows how often a particular search-term is entered relative to the total search-volume across various regions of the world, and in various languages.
The horizontal axis of the main graph represents time (starting from 2004), and the vertical is how often a term is searched for relative to the total number of searches, globally.
Google Trends also allows the user to compare the volume of searches between two or more terms. An additional feature of Google Trends is in its ability to show news related to the search-term overlaid on the chart, showing how new events affect search popularity.
