Cos4Cloud developed thirteen technological services to improve citizen observatories by helping them to increase the quantity and the quality of observations.

The Problem

One of the biggest challenges of citizen science is the quality of data, as well as maintaining the citizen observatories used to collect this data.

Aims

Cos4Cloud aimed to address the data quality and quantity challenges face by citizen science observatories.

Approach

Cos4Cloud developed thirteen technological services to improve citizen science platforms, also known as citizen observatories, to help them boost the quantity and the quality of observations and, finally, to help ensure their long-term viability.

Our role and how the project relates to our work

FreshWater Watch was one of the citizen-science projects Cos4Cloud sought to improve through the application of their technological services.
