SOBOS is an iOS and Android mobile app, providing information about normal, non-accident based recreational boaters designed to mitigate recreational boating accidents. SOBOS asks recreational boat operators to fill out a short survey that permits them to select a span of their next excursion to be tracked on the water. Both the anonymous survey and anonymous on-water data points are then linked to each on-water waypoint.The goal of this project is to test the efficacy of crowdsourcing this data as an evidence-based public health approach to reducing boating accidents. Dr. Ernie Marshburn explains how state boating programs can help promote this project to their boaters.
