9/11 Memorial

The National September 11 Memorial and Museum created the official 9/11 Memorial application as a guide to understanding 9/11 through the eyes of those who witnessed the events. Given the sensitivity surrounding the events of 9/11, viewer discretion is advised. The app has three features:


A seven-stop walking tour of the area around the World Trade Center, accompanied by audio and photo narration. The events of the day and its aftermath are told by first responders, rescue workers, volunteers, and those who lived and worked in Lower Manhattan on 9/11. While the walking tour takes place in Lower Manhattan, the tour content is accessible to users anywhere.


View images related to the events of 9/11 and their aftermath taken nearby wherever you are. Photos may be viewed in Augmented Reality-technology mode which overlays images on the camera view. All photos were contributed to the museum by survivors and witnesses through 911history.org.


An interactive timeline of the day’s events and aftermath. Includes links to witness photos taken during these time blocks.

The app can operate in an offline mode for non-U.S. visitors who have disabled data roaming. In this mode, all tour content is still accessible. The app includes a map of free WiFi hotspots near the tour route for downloading “Explore” photos from the vicinity.

The app is rated 9+ due to infrequent/mild realistic violence or infrequent/mild mature/suggestive themes.

Aesop for Children

The Aesop for Children interactive book is designed to be enjoyed by readers of any age. The book contains over 140 classic fables, accompanied by beautiful illustrations and interactive animations.

“Aesop's Fables”—also called “the Aesopica”—are a collection of stories designed to teach moral lessons credited to Aesop, a Greek slave and story-teller thought to have lived between 620 and 560 BCE.

Aesop's fables are some of the most well known in the world and have been translated in multiple languages and become popular in dozens of cultures through the course of five centuries. They have been told and retold in a variety of media, from oral tradition to written storybooks to stage, film and animated cartoon versions—even in architecture.

The fables remain a popular choice for moral education of children today. Younger scholars will be able to trace the origin of aphorisms such as “sour grapes” and “a bird in the hand.”

This interactive ebook is presented by the Library of Congress, adapted from the book “The Aesop for Children: with Pictures by Milo Winter,” published by Rand, McNally & Co in 1919. This work is considered to be in the public domain in the United States.

Airport Wait Times

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) closely monitors the flight processing times, commonly referred to as wait times, for arriving flights at 23 of the busiest international airports. The flight processing time is the length of time from flight arrival to the time the last passenger on the flight is screened by CBP officers in the primary processing area. 

Flight arrival patterns can vary considerably by time of year and day of week, as well as by time of day. The best predictor of wait times for future flights is the wait time observed for the corresponding seasonal time period in the recent past. To help travelers in planning their next flight, CBP is providing the public with historical data for the past twelve months that can be used to estimate seasonal wait times by airport and arrival terminal. 

As you are planning your next flight, remember that CBP airport wait times do not include time to retrieve baggage or navigate through the airport. These times should be factored in as well if you will be scheduling a connecting flight. Always consult with the airline and airport authority for additional guidance.

American Red Cross: Shelter View

**Please note: The American Red Cross is a charitable organization, not a government agency.**


When disaster strikes know when and where shelters have been opened to provide assistance.


Offered by the American Red Cross, the application maps locations and shelter details across the United States. Zoom in to the local area. View shelter details: the agency managing the shelter, capacity of the shelter and current population, the associated disaster event and the specific shelter address and location.


View open shelters by state, jump to the latest disaster information via the Disaster Online Newsroom, and donate to help the American Red Cross respond to those in need.


The application uses data about open shelters from the American Red Cross National Shelter System (NSS). The NSS contains information about 60,000 potential disaster facilities and is used to track and report on shelter information during disasters. The NSS enables emergency managers and disaster relief workers to identify relevant information for all shelters in use and to develop effective response strategies before disasters strike.

NSS information is available to assist FEMA, state and local emergency management officials, non-profit, charitable, and faith-based organizations manage and deploy effective mass care services.


Shelter information is updated from the NSS every 30 minutes. Current populations are typically updated every noon and midnight when shelters are open and providing assistance.

This application was contributed to the American Red Cross by VisionLink® in Boulder, CO, providing enterprise software (CommunityOS™) for multi-agency client and case management, community resource management and referral, and disaster relief solutions.

Chandra X-ray Observatory

Since its launch on July 23, 1999, the Chandra X-ray Observatory has been NASA’s flagship mission for X-ray astronomy, taking its place in the fleet of “Great Observatories.”

NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory is a telescope specially designed to detect X-ray emission from very hot regions of the Universe such as exploded stars, clusters of galaxies, and matter around black holes. Because X-rays are absorbed by Earth’s atmosphere, Chandra must orbit above it, up to an altitude of 139,000 km (86,500 mi) in space. The Smithsonian’s Astrophysical Observatory in Cambridge, MA, hosts the Chandra X-ray Center which operates the satellite, processes the data, and distributes it to scientists around the world for analysis. The Center maintains an extensive public web site about the science results and an education program.

A rotating slider with the latest news; and
Easily scrollable lists of wanted fugitives and missing kids.

Fishes: East Pacific

This App is the first of a set of 3 portable identification guides for Apple touch-screen devices from the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute that will cover the regional shore-fish faunas of all three neotropical biogeographic marine regions: the Tropical Eastern Pacific, the Greater Caribbean (Caribbean and nearby areas) and Brazil.

This Fishes: East Pacific App was adapted from the website Shorefishes of the tropical eastern Pacific: online information system (www.stri.org/sftep), which was published in late 2008. That website was derived from a CD format system of the same name, published in 2002, which in turn was developed from English (1994) and Spanish (1998) books of the same title.

This App provides a set of portable identification tools functionally equivalent to those in the website edition. While that website requires an ongoing internet connection to function, the App works independently of the web after being downloaded. Fishes: East Pacific works wherever an iPhone can go. As well as acting as an ID Guide this App also allows users to make and organize lists that record information about fishes in the App’s database, and can be downloaded by email.

- Language Interfaces
This App includes complete English and Spanish language interfaces. The user is automatically connected to the interface that relates to the language set in the preferences of the device.

Housing Discrimination Complaint Application

This app allows you to submit a claim of housing discrimination for review by Housing and Urban Development's Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity. Your fair housing rights are protected under Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 (Fair Housing Act). If those rights have been violated, you can use this App to file a claim of housing discrimination with HUD.

Anyone can file a complaint with HUD at no cost. Fair housing complaints can be filed by any entity, including individuals and community groups. Those that file fair housing complaints are known as complainants. Those against whom fair housing complaints are filed are called respondents.

After HUD has received the initial information, an intake specialist will contact the complainant and interview him or her to collect facts about the alleged discrimination. Initial interviews are normally conducted by telephone. The intake specialist will then review the allegations to determine whether the matter is jurisdictional.

If HUD has the authority to investigate, it will file the complaint. If the allegations do not fall within HUD's jurisdiction, for example if the complaint does not allege housing discrimination, HUD cannot accept the complaint and must close the case.

If the alleged discrimination occurred within a state or locality in HUD's Fair Housing Assistance Program*, HUD will refer the complaint to that agency. That agency must begin to work with the complainant within 30 days, or HUD can take the complaint back.

Identify Invasive Animals and Plants in FL

IveGot1 brings the power of EDDMapS to your iPhone. Now you can submit invasive species observations directly with your iPhone from the field. These reports are uploaded to EDDMapS and e-mailed directly to local and state verifiers for review. IveGot1 was developed by the University of Georgia Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health through a cooperative agreement with the National Park Service, in cooperation with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the University of Florida Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants. IveGot1 is more than just an iPhone app, it is an integrated invasive species reporting and outreach campaign for Florida that includes the app, a website with direct access to invasive species reporting and a hotline 1-888-IVEGOT1 for instant reports of live animals. 

Every year more than 85 million people visit Florida. However, people are not Florida's only visitors; Florida is also an inviting destination for invasive species that threaten to undermine the health of our environment. More than an inconvenience, invasive plants and animals can greatly alter our native landscape, adversely impact native wildlife, destroy agricultural crops and threaten our health. Invasions of exotic species cost Floridians over $500 million each year. The economic costs are small compared to the ecological ones. Florida has millions of acres of public lands; these lands furnish us the water we drink, the air we breathe and countless recreational opportunities. These public lands are highly vulnerable to invasion by exotic plant and animal species; it is estimated that more than 1.7 million acres of Florida’s natural areas have been infested by invasive species. 

By reporting sightings of invasive animals and plants, we can better assess the extent of the infestations and hopefully eradicate new infestations before they become huge problems such as melaleuca or Burmese pythons. The goal of IveGot1 is to make identification and reporting easy and efficient as possible. Easy species reporting that captures your current location and allows you to submit an image of your sightings. 


  • IveGot1 allows for both online and offline reporting with reports saved on your phone for uploading when you have network connectivity. 
  • Images and information on Florida's worst non-native invasive animals and plants. 
  • Real-time point distribution maps centered on your current location. 

Get Involved - Join the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council or your local Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area (CISMA) through the Florida Invasive Species Partnership. 

Powered by EDDMapS - The University of Georgia Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health's Early Detection and Distribution Mapping System. EDDMapS allows for real time tracking of invasive species occurrences using local and national distribution maps and electronic early detection reporting tools.

This solution allows the user to become better educated about the species and then share their finding with government on a voluntary basis. The application once first loaded will ask the user to complete an anonymous five question survey which those results will be shared with the Fish and Wildlife agency of the United States. Once that survey is completed the user will not see that again and will be taken to the home screen. From the home screen the user can chose to take a photo, click on additional information on the species or learn about the groups that help to develop this application. Our intent with this application is to give the user an opportunity to submit their findings of this rare species and learn interesting facts as well.

The National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL) and the Precipitation Identification Near the Ground project (W-PING) have created this app to collect data from volunteers who are interested in watching and reporting on precipitation.

This app and associated web pages are your portal to providing observations to the research meteorologists at NSSL that will help us develop and refine algorithms that use the newly upgraded dual-polarization NEXRAD radars to detect and report on the type of precipitation that you see falling.

The basic idea is simple: NSSL will collect radar data from NEXRAD radars in your area along with sounding data from our models during storm events, and use your data to develop and validate new and better algorithms.

Why? Because the radars cannot see close to the ground at far distances and because automated surface sensors are only at airports. But the people affected by winter weather are everywhere so we need you to tell us what is happening where you are.

All you need to do is use this app to select the precipitation type. Tell NSSL what is hitting the ground. NSSL scientists will compare your report with what the radar has detected and what our models think the atmosphere is doing, and use it to develop new technologies and techniques to determine what kind of precipitation such as snow, ice, rain or hail and its size is falling where.

Stay informed and safe in the heat, check your risk level.

For more information about safety while working in the heat, see OSHA’s heat illness webpage, including new online guidance about using the heat index to protect workers.

**Please note: The American Red Cross is a charitable organization, not a government agency.**

Offering emergency care protocols & guides, by the American Red Cross & Dr. Oz.

The American Red Cross and Dr. Oz have teamed up with Sharecare to create the ultimate emergency care app exclusively for Android mobile devices. The S.O.S. app provides step-by-step video narration by Dr. Oz and follow along demonstrations allowing people to quickly and confidently respond to common emergency situations with the goal of saving lives. This free app also includes an expansive Resource Guide for easy access to additional emergency care information.

Emergency care protocols for over 30 of the most common emergency care situations were developed and reviewed by prestigious medical and educational panels from both the American Red Cross and the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP). These protocols were then adapted for an Android app environment and are accompanied by dynamic videos that walk through clear and concise emergency action steps that are appropriate for any audience. Dr. Oz is the instructional voice of each video, reassuringly guiding users on how to provide emergency care. 3-D animations are included for the more complex techniques, specifically Unconscious Choking and CPR which also include an audio and visual counter for real time CPR compressions.

The Resource Guide covers over 50 common emergency care situations and was adapted from current American Red Cross training materials. It includes information on everything from CPR to seizures to broken bones, all in an easy to understand and browse Q&A format.

In addition to the emergency protocols and resource guide, the SOS app features 911 dialing that auto launches a helpful map with location information which becomes active while on call with emergency dispatch. Additionally, the SOS app provides the same helpful information for 911 calls manually dialed from outside the app. SOS app users can quickly access rich resource materials with voice recognition and keep personal emergency contact info handy at all times.

Satellite Insight

“Satellite Insight” was created for the GOES-R mission (Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite, R series), under development at Goddard Space Flight Center as a joint NASA and NOAA effort. Educational as well as entertaining, the game challenges players to keep up with the stream of data from GOES-R’s six main instruments.

Colored blocks falling into columns on a grid represent small pieces of data. To save lives and protect expensive instruments, the GOES-R weather satellite must not lose any data. Users bundle like data types together by tapping to select three or more contiguous same-colored blocks, then tap on the GOES-R satellite to store the data before the grid overflows. Data blocks fall slowly at first, but arrive faster as the game continues. Each speed-up also brings a power-up tool players can use at any time to help clear the grid. They keep the game going as long as they can and try to beat their best time.

The game builds awareness of this important technical resource that most people never hear about. The game instructions also include basic information about GOES-R and geostationary orbits, as well as links to The Space Place, the NASA Science Mission Directorate’s website for elementary school kids; and SciJinks, the website about weather and Earth science for middle-school kids jointly sponsored by NASA and NOAA.

Whale Alert - Ship Strike Reduction for Right Whales

Whale Alert benefits right whale conservation and the maritime community by depicting active right whale management areas, required reporting areas, recommended routes, areas-to-be-avoided and near real-time warnings of the presence of North Atlantic right whales in shipping lanes in and around the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary derived from automatic passive acoustic buoys. This information allows vessel operators to avoid collision with right whales by slowing down and heightening their visual awareness. Whale Alert can help reduce the likelihood of ships colliding with these endangered whales, which can injure or kill them.

The Whale Alert App is designed to complement existing protective measures by providing mariners and others with all relevant right whale conservation and management measures in a single location displayed on NOAA nautical charts.

For more information, including a start-up manual and video tutorial go to http://stellwagen.noaa.gov/ and click on Whale Alert.

Whale Alert features include:

• NOAA Atlantic Seasonal Management Areas
• NOAA Atlantic Dynamic Management Areas
• NOAA Atlantic MSR Boundaries
• NOAA Atlantic Recommended Routes
• NOAA and IMO Atlantic designated Areas-to-be-Avoided
• Near Real-time Boston-area Acoustic Whale Detection Buoys
• Receipt of Acoustic Buoy detections and Dynamic Management Areas via Internet or
• Seamless Nautical Chart of the Atlantic Coast
• GPS Position Tracking and Alert for Entering Management Areas

Whale Alert does not provide individual sighting location of whales.

Whale Alert has been developed by a collaboration of government agencies, academic institutions, non-profit conservation groups and private sector industries, led by scientists at NOAA’s Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary. Collaborating organizations include: Bioacoustics Research Program at the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology, Boston Harbor Pilots, Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping at the University of New Hampshire, EarthNC, Excelerate Energy, EOM Offshore, Gaia GPS, International Fund for Animal Welfare, Massachusetts Port Authority, NOAA Fisheries Service, NOAA Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, National Park Service, Cape Cod National Seashore, NYK Line (North America), United States Coast Guard and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

WISER (Wireless Information System for Emergency Responders)

WISER (Wireless Information System for Emergency Responders) is a mobile application designed to assist first responders in hazardous material incidents. 

First responders in general, and HAZMAT units in particular, must make many decisions quickly in handling hazardous-materials incidents. They need accurate information about the hazardous substances, the emergency resources available, and the surrounding environmental conditions to save lives and minimize the impact on the environment and physical property. The WISER application extracts content from TOXNET’s Hazardous Substances Data Bank (HSDB), an authoritative, peer-reviewed information resource maintained by the National Library of Medicine, and places that information into the hands of those who need it most.

Features of WISER

* Rapid access to the most important information about a hazardous substance by an intelligent synopsis engine and display called “Key Info”

* Intuitive, simple, logical user interface developed by working with experienced first responders

* Comprehensive decision support, including guidance on immediate actions necessary to save lives and protect the environment

* Access to NLM’s Hazardous Substances Data Bank (HSDB), which contains detailed peer-reviewed information on hazardous substances

* User Profiles enable users to specify the role they are currently playing at the scene of an incident: first responder, HAZMAT specialist, or EMS specialist. The key information presented to the user about a substance varies depending on this role, so that the information most relevant to the respective job can be quickly accessed.

* Radiological and biological substance support.

* Mobile support, providing first responders critical information where they need it, when they need it.

When it rains, it pours – words, that is! WordWeather, developed by the National Cancer Institute as part of Smokefree Teen (teen.smokefree.gov) allows you to race against the clock to spell words using falling letter rain drops. But beware, it’s no walk in the park with flying hail bombers that could strike at any time and knock off your letters if they hit the ground. Fortunately, you’ve got those fluffy, fantastical snowflakes on your side. If you catch one, the freezing temperatures will cause the rain drops to fall slower for a brief period of time. Increase your score by tapping rain drops containing bonus points and by quickly completing a level. Words get longer, rain drops fall faster and time seems to go quicker as you advance through each level.

WordWeather is a product of Smokefree Teen (SfT)—a smoking cessation resource for teens created by the Tobacco Control Research Branch at the National Cancer Institute. More information on Smokefree Teen can be found by visiting http://teen.smokefree.gov.
