SECOORA Webcam Data Challenge ends 2/15!

A competition seeking contestants to transform web cameras into environmental monitoring tools that tackle real-world questions and problems.

Proposals Due February 15, 2019 | 5 PM ET

Web cameras are transforming environmental monitoring. Increasingly, scientists are analyzing video data to improve forecasts, answer questions, and support decision making.


Although camera data are being applied for environmental monitoring, they are currently underutilized. The Southeast Coastal Ocean Observing Regional Association (SECOORA) is asking the next generation of data experts to identify ways in which video footage can be applied for societal benefits.


Goals of the Data Challenge

  • Encourage the use of data resources available from SECOORA (
  • Use technologies, tools, videos, and creativity to visualize, analyze, and apply WebCAT data in order to tackle real-world questions/problems.
  • Build on and enhance existing SECOORA initiatives.
  • Provide students and young professionals with the opportunity to develop a competitive proposal.
