MOBILE ENVIRONMENTAL CITIZEN SCIENCE AT MICHIGAN TECH
Michigan Tech’s Mobile Environmental Citizen Science project creates mobile and web-based apps to collect environmental information, designed by Michigan Tech students. The goals of the project are to (a) put mobile and web-based tools in the hands of citizens for collecting information for scientists studying natural and social environments and (b) encourage students to harness their skills to solve environmental problems, by engaging them in real-world projects with scientists as collaborators. The project is supported through the National Science Foundation's Cyberinfrastructure Training, Education, Advancement, and Mentoring for Our 21st Century Workforce (CI-TEAM) Program, Award # OCI-1135523Michigan Technological University is not responsible for the accuracy and reliability of data or content of unrelated information in the posted data as it is being collected and submitted by independent third parties.
Our citizen science apps are motivated by scientists, natural resources managers, representatives of non-governmental organizations and similar individuals seeking innovative data collection methods. Refer to www.citizenscience.cs.mtu.edu/citsci/about for a list of individuals who have worked with us to date. If you have an idea for using mobile apps for collecting data for your research or other endeavors, please contact Alex Mayer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
