New Jersey Needs Categories

MyCoastNJ could use additional categories. Some possibles: Photographs can be focused on dunes, fences, roadways, etc left vulnerable by flooding. Or reverse flow flooding through storm drains. Or overwhelmed culverts with water topping a roadway. Or seawalls, jetties, sandbars, other structures. Or vulnerable residential or commercial buildings. I've noticed that other states have different selections. There should be a key explaining the dot colors on the MyCoast map. The map should have the option to open full screen. I still think you should reconsider the title and purpose of Places I Love. It should target areas that flood but aren't flooded at the time. Extreme low tides provide useful images of the seafloor, for example. Damaged dune fence or sand on a roadway from a recent tidal surge is an aftermath photo, not a flooding shot. It might prompt more activity. I use the app regularly and find it easy to use. I certainly see its potential.

Thanks for the feedback!

Sorry about the difficulty accessing the menu icon. We've fixed this in the latest version.

We're not grabbing compass direction yet, but we've been looking into it!

They deleted my sons hard work

They deleted all the information that my son did for nine hours. We were at a different beach. I didn’t see where you could change the name. I thought it automatically picked up on where you were. So they deleted his work that he did. I have nothing to show for him and his volunteer work for those nine hours for him to get his black belt.

What a great idea!!!

After seeing garbage, debris and derelict boats and docks all over the beaches I can finally make a difference! It’s as easy as taking a picture and writing a short report!!! This is the sort of tech that will help make the world a more green place and it’s easy for anyone to use.
