When we examine the world broadly, we see a growing issue of aging infrastructure. Unfortunately, service providers governing these infrastructure assets have not always adequately maintained and renewed the facilities they manage.
Imbalanced access to information between service providers and citizens
The lack of general incentive among parties to challenge the status quo
Help the database grow, earn tokens for your contributions
What you earn will fluctuate based on how much you contributed to help improve infrastructure
Become engaged with your community, and collaborate with service providers to build a smarter infrastructure
Whole Earth Access (WEA) comprises the following three key groups:
Information providers (mainly general citizens) can access the environmental database and contribute data to earn utility tokens.
Infrastructure service providers can utilize the environmental database and tools created by third-party developers to improve development projects’ efficiency.
Partners can access the environmental database to develop novel tools that benefit the infrastructure and the environment, help publicize our project and vision to the world, and much more.
WEA platform tools to build and utilize the environmental database
Create reports about the condition of your local infrastructure, sharing the latest information with the community
Use intelligent machine learning applications powered by the environmental database to obtain predictive insight about local infrastructure and make smarter decisions
Bringing Game to Infrastructure
