Citizen Observatories (COs) are community-based environmental monitoring and information systems, that invite individuals to share observations, typically via mobile phone or the web. Further information about this can be found at: https://www.weobserve.eu/about/citizen-observatories/
This survey is intended for those who have experience of citizen observation and other associated fields, that include, but are not limited to; citizen science, participatory sensing, citizen sensing and environmental observation. We are keen to hear from you if you have a tool you that you have used and would like to share, and promote through WeObserve.
We define the term 'tool' very broadly, this might include, for example:- a low-fidelity sensor (e.g. DampBusters, Smart Citizen, BoraBora sensor)- a testing protocol (e.g. GROW Sensing Guide; The Cornell Lab Citizen Science Toolkit for refining protocols)- instructions for running participatory workshops (e.g. Community Level Indicators in Citizen Sensing: A Toolkit)
Please answer every question to the best of your knowledge, but do not feel you have to answer everything.
To contribute, please fill out one form per tool. You are allowed to complete as many forms as you would like. Completion of one form should take between 5-10 mins.
You may contact us at any time to ask questions or withdraw from this study, to do so, please email Saskia at firstname.lastname@example.org
