In 2014, Vertices and the Galveston Bay Action Network collaborated to create a pollution monitoring app for the Galveston Bay. This app allows members of the public to contribute to local conservation efforts by reporting water pollution incidents using their smartphones or tablets. When a user uploads a point, an email alert is automatically sent out to the proper authorities based on the type of pollution and the municipality in which the incident occurred.
