one thing that caught my attention while I was off was a project involving Drawdown Toronto. It’s a local community group that shares goals (and a name) with Project Drawdown, a global non-profit group dedicated to promoting effective solutions to fight climate change.
They were recruiting volunteers at a local eco-fair in November to help create a map of which grocery stores were still using powerful greenhouse gas refrigerants called HFCs (hydrofluorocarbons). 
Drawdown Toronto and Drawdown BC are both helping with the Climate-Friendly Supermarkets project launched by another non-profit called the Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA). The goal is to motivate supermarkets to drastically reduce their emissions by switching to greener refrigerants.

  1. In what ways would an MIS major be involved in a project that has uses upload geo-located photos which then have data analytics applied to them (in this case to determine if the freezers and fridges in the store are using climate friendly refrigerants, or not) and then present them on a map?
  2. In what other ways could this idea/technology be used?
