How cool! Imagine if 1,000 people took a photo of the same landmark in
a park, let’s say, over a set period of time. We’d realize what’s in that part of the park all the time and what’s there temporarily. Changes in
nature (phenologicalchanges, in particular) and other activities would berecorded and trended but what if  near infrared filterswere also placed on those cameras? We could then compare sensor data from the cameras tomake good estimates about the temperatures in that park and comparethat to usage statistics in that same park over the same time. We might
 be able to predict the day when leaves will fall from the park’strees…and so much more.
