Citizen Science Apps & Observatories

Our main field of work consists of creating custom built Citizen Science apps for projects by universities and institutions to collect data and spark communities. 

Built on a common platform, SPOTTERON enables Citizen Science projects to run custom built smartphone apps and interactive web-apps, which are always maintained for stability, compatiblity and a high quality user experience. The platform is constantly extended with new features for scientists and citizens alike. This "Extension Ecosystem" is available for all Citizen Science projects on the platform without additional costs and enables a single project to have a wide range of advanced tools ready for their Citizen Scientists from the beginning. As part of our mission, we see it as our responsibility to have the tools and websites of a project running hassle-free for the project teams in a fast changing mobile world.
