Update from WKO

Last month we were excited to announce that the World Karate Organization was jumping into the pool of Safecast volunteers and would be mapping out some new territory for us and helping us test our a new version of our bGeigie, that for this specific purpose we’re calling it the “Black Belt bGeigie”. We’re excited to say we’ve begun receiving data from them already and their new coverage of Sapporo is in our database now. New ground is always exciting for us, and new ground with normal levels is even better. We’re looking forward to the next batch of data and continuing to fill in the empty spaces on our maps!
