Why Citizen Science?
There are not enough scientists to monitor the world's ecosystems and the resolution of remote sensing technologies are often severely limited.. To improve our collective understanding of the regional impacts of planetary change, science needs your help!
Our citizen scientists collect large quantities of valuable data which improve researchers' insights into the mechanisms of planetary change. Using a novel "Geocaching for Science" mobile platform, ReefQuest citizen scientists collect data on a large diversity of ecosystems globally.
We are constantly developing these systems and the processing techniques which enable scientifically rigorous data-outputs. Our Artificial Intelligence and Applied-Informatics work provides analysis of the datasets in support of, and in partnership with, global research institutions.
Our citizen science platform provides the basis for classroom STEM curricula that are experiential and engaging for students worldwide.
