What

In this webinar you will learn about citizen science activities related to the oceans. We will use the case of jelly fish as an example, start with the observations done by citizens using mobile apps. Then you learn how the data can be integrated in systems, including the use of standards making the data, in this case biological data, interoperable. You will also learn how to approach making the apps themselves. As NextGEOSS already has citizen science data catalogued on the data hub, you will now learn how we will expand this with the help from among others Earthwatch through their contribution to the ILIAD project.

Why now?

Citizen science data, and fusion of data in general, represent a huge potential to learn more about the oceans in particular as the oceans still remain a mystery to us, being so little explored as it is. The oceans play a vital role for humans in numerous ways. This is reflected in the international decade for ocean science and this webinar is one of many to come addressing and highlighting Earth observations in and for the oceans.

Who is it for?

This webinar aims to reach Earth observation professionals and students, Citizen science public and private organisations, App makers, ocean advocates, marine environmentalist, oceanographers, ecologists.
