This paper presents AquApp, an information system for a collaborative sensor network. AquApp deploys information collected from the water bodies of the city of Cartagena. The goal is to monitor the water bodies surrounding the city and to establish the current state of the sea. The system can determine the degree of pollution, water levels and environmental conditions of marine fauna and flora through a wireless sensor network. At the same time, this sensor network can help detect contaminants such as oil, which can help to take action quickly, reducing damage to the ecosystem. The collected data will be available to scientists and institutions for further study. The information can be acquired through a website, thus allowing access from anywhere in the world to anyone that may be interested. It is expected that the availability of this information allows research centers, educational institutions, and government to design plans for prevention and improvement of water bodies surrounding the city, and provide updated information. The platform is open to collaborators. Research centers, academic community, and even sensor manufacturers are welcome to join forces in this project. © 2016 IEEE.
