  • What is Citizen Science?

    Volunteers are the heart of British conservation. Many such volunteers give up their time to collect scientific information, such as the number of birds in a woodland, or sightings of invasive species. These endeavours are known as ‘citizen science’. Phil investigates the diversity of citizen science projects, examines their value, and shows how you can get involved. So, grab your coat, wave your conservation themed flags, and salute the trees, as we explore the world of citizen science… --- If you like this episode, or any other, why not hit that subscribe button?

  • The citizen science revolution | Leesa Ricci | TEDxSUU

    Science is not just for specialists. Many new and important scientific discoveries are being made by "citizen scientists," non-professional researchers, who contribute data and observations to our collective knowledge of the planet and beyond. Leesa Ricci is a passionate advocate for citizen science projects and believes we can all contribute to the body of scientific knowledge in meaningful ways through participatory culture. Leesa is currently working on her Master’s of Public Administration degree at Southern Utah University. Leesa works at the Ashcroft Observatory and is the current Director of the Southern Utah Space Foundation.

  • Can Citizen Science Save Us? | Mary Ellen Hannibal | TEDxStanford

    After three world-class scientists broke down and wept as they told science writer Hannibal about the alarming findings of their research on extinction, she knew she had to do something. Now the citizen scientist and Stanford Media Scholar is showing us how each of us can contribute to saving endangered plants and animals, one iPhone app and observation at a time. Mary Ellen Hannibal is a long-time journalist focused on natural history and literature. Her most recent book, Citizen Scientist: Searching for Heroes and Hope in an Age of Extinction, was named one of 2016’s best non-fiction books by the San Francisco Chronicle.

    August 21, 2017 will be a very special day. For the first time in 100 years, a total solar eclipse will cross the United States. It’s not only an opportunity for millions of people to appreciate this rare astronomical event, but a chance for scientists to gain a better understanding of how the sun’s atmosphere behaves. Enter the Eclipse Megamovie Project. Led by the University of California at Berkeley, scientists from multiple universities are turning to citizen scientists for help gathering images of the sun and its atmosphere, the corona. Volunteers armed with standard photography equipment—a camera, telephoto lens, and tripod—will capture photos of the eclipse as the moon’s shadow passes over their part of the country. Once this huge dataset is collected, it’s Google’s turn. We’ll u...

It’s not only an opportunity for millions of people to appreciate this rare astronomical event, but a chance for scientists to gain a better understanding of how the sun’s atmosphere behaves. Enter the Eclipse Megamovie Project. Led by the University of California at Berkeley, scientists from multiple universities are turning to citizen scientists for help gathering images of the sun and its atmosphere, the corona. Volunteers armed with standard photography equipment—a camera, telephoto lens, and tripod—will capture photos of the eclipse as the moon’s shadow passes over their part of the country. Once this huge dataset is collected, it’s Google’s turn. We’ll use our technology to algorithmically align and process the images submitted by citizen scientists to create a continuous view of the eclipse: the Eclipse Megamovie. In addition to the movie, the full dataset of images will be made available to the public and the scientific community. Time will only tell what insights and projects may come from this rich collection. If you’ll be on the path of totality and plan on taking pictures, the project needs your help. Head to https://eclipsemega.movie/ to learn more about how to join and take the best eclipse photographs possible.

Johan Codinha http://linux.conf.au/schedule/presentation/148/ The victorian biodiversity is facing constant danger, from bush fires to pest and weeds just to name few. To protect the different ecosystem from natural and human disaster the government needs data ! I am going to walk you thru the history of biodiversity data collection in Victoria ( it's a young country so it's gonna be a short walk ), from hundreds of government employee surveying the countryside in the 80's to 2016 where we rely almost exclusively on citizen scientists to provide accurate data. Then we will have a look at tools of the past, present and future for collecting biodiversity data and what is the role of standards and open software. Government agencies are taking land management decision based on biodiversity databases, we will have a look at how the data is beeing verified and what are the potential security risks.
