EMODnet Biology Autumn Data School - Data rescue via citizen science platforms


  • 15 Nov 2023
  • Hybrid

This session will focus on teaching participants how to use Citizen Science platforms, such as Zooniverse and the LifeWatch Citizen Science Platform. The purpose of this Training Session is to create a Citizen Science project and engage volunteers in the historical data rescue and standardization process. For this session a historical dataset will be selected by the organizers of the Workshop, based on the work done in the previous phase of the EMODnet Biology IV. It is important to highlight that the number of historical datasets provided currently by the Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL) that concern marine species and include at least 100 taxa; is almost 2000.
