How are you performing research on Citizen Science, taking part in Citizen Science activities and/or supporting Citizen Science?:
My PhD research focuses on how to ensure the MammalWeb project, with involvement from citizen scientists in north east England, can produce useful ecological knowledge. In other words, I'm researching how to best implement a citizen science project.
I hope to learn from other ECSA members, and contribute what I learn to the academic community.
Name of Citizen Science Project:
Organization running the project:
Durham University and Durham Wildlife Trust
Brief description of project:
MammalWeb is a web platform where citizen scientists deploy camera traps to monitor wild mammals in north east England. These photos are uploaded to MammalWeb where anyone with Internet access can come help classify the animals that show up. We are also building in interactive dashboard where you can explore the dataset to answer your own ecological questions.
