Connecting Citizen Science with Remote Sensing

Start Date:
Jan. 24, 2023
End Date:
Jan. 31, 2023
Description:
Citizen science projects provide the opportunity for community member volunteers to monitor the Earth. These projects can provide great benefits to projects that combine Earth Observations with ground-based information. This training will provide attendees an overview of citizen science efforts that use Earth Observations, and how to engage with community members in a supportive and meaningful manner to achieve project goals.
Targeted Audience:
Local, regional, state, federal, and non-governmental organizations involved in land management, conservation, biodiversity, and forest monitoring. Educators and scientists interested in involvement with citizen science would also be interested in this training topic.
Expected Outcomes:
By the end of this training, attendees will be able to: -Summarize applications of Earth Observations for citizen science -Outline key aspects of citizen science projects including community engagement, quality assurance of data collection, cataloging and summarizing data, and effective communication of project results -Discover case study examples of the use of Earth Observations for NASA Applied Sciences projects
