taivaanvahti-mobileTaivaanvaht (www.taivaanvahti.fi) is a database for gathering amateurs’ observations of astronomical and atmospherical phenomena. The goal of this project is to create an application, which can send an observation to Taivaanvahti by using a mobile device. Taivaanvahti currently has several individually made mobile clients for browsing the observations, but none for sending those.
Taivaanvahti is a database for gathering amateurs’ observations of astronomical and atmospherical phenomena. It combines Finnish observations of storms, northern lights, galaxies, fireballs, halos, comets and planets under one single website available for everyone interested in space and meteorology:
The system is maintained and developed by Ursa Astronomical Association. Taivaanvahti receives approximately 9 000 observations a year.
In this project we took an existing mobile taivaanvahti client (https://github.com/zuh/taivaanvahti-jolla) and added functionality for sending observations. We also ported it to iOS.
