This group is trying to formalize a common understanding of interests in the Citizen Science data space, analyzing problems that Citizen Science projects face regarding data, such as interoperability, data reliability (e.g. how Citizen Science data can be trusted and plugged into environmental regulation and monitoring requirements from governments), privacy, or data intellectual property rights.
To do so, the group is establishing collaborations with other technical organizations (such as the Open Geospatial Consortium –OGC-) or other Citizen Science Associations (CSA, ACSA).
