Presentation Transcript

  1. WHAT IS CITIZEN SCIENCE?

  2. FLAVOR 1: Perform a task with already collected data (example: Planet Hunters)

  3. FLAVOR 2: Citizen Naturalist Approaches (e.g. citizen’s collect data from the environment for use in science)

  4. Naturalist citizen science approaches are not new

  5. Some Naturalist Citizen Science Endeavors Have Explicit Sampling Methods and Protocols

  6. Volunteer networks for camera trapping along Appalachian Trail

  7. These data can be used for occupancy studies

  8. iNaturalist – cit.sci. at scale using mobile devices

  9. AmphibiaWeb – focus on aggregation of new data/knowledge

  10. Project Budburst - Phenology of flowering/leafing

  11. Back to Flavor 2– Don’t take the images, help process them

  12. Notes from Nature P.2 – A work-flow

  13. OLD WEATHER TRANSCRIPTION PROJECT - CLIMATE LOG DATA MECHANICAL TURK: Date: 15 chars 2) Positional information: 10 chars (lat/long) 3) Weather: 120 chars (20 * 6 observations). Total Cost: 145 * 0.015 = $2.175/record * 2 for double keying = $4.35 350,000 logs pages * $4.35 = 1.5 million TOTAL COST OF CIT. SCI OLD WEATHER: $120,000 funding total

  14. OLD WEATHER – TRANSCRIBING SHIP’S LOGS FROM WW1 to recreate climate in the past

  15. Field Notes: • A mix of structured and unstructured content • Contains essential information not in specimen records • Content unique to field notebooks and nowhere else • Field notes enables new research (e.g. Grinnell Resurvey) • Citizen science approaches for extracting data from fieldnotes

  16. Citizen Science Annotation of Field Notebooks

  17. SERENGETI LIVE: Identify photos of animals from camera traps

  18. Group similar whale sounds together

  19. CITIZEN SCIENCE WORKS AT SCALE • (understanding biodiversity change may well require such massive effort)

  20. CITIZEN SCIENCE HAS INTANGIBLE BENEFITS • (Engagement in science process, value of collective effort, volunteerism for things that matter)
