Experimental Weather App for Farmers


New Member

We are a group of computer science students tasked with designing a phone/tablet app to predict the weather. As part of this project we had to specify a target audience for which the app will be designed according to their needs.

We have chosen the group of farmers to build the app for, and so we need to collect data about what you would like included.


If you could take the survey we would be the most grateful.

Also, suggestions of any kind are welcome (you can help even with telling us that this is a bad initiative / you wouldn't find such a thing useful, etc.).

Thank you!
