Services

Since 2014, SPOTTERON is providing Citizen Science Apps and Services for science projects and institutions with a strong focus on design, technical professionality, reliability and user interaction. Trusted by universities, institutions and stakeholders across Europe and beyond, we are creating custom digital solutions for science and Citizen Science Applications along with Project Websites and advanced tools for Data Analysis and Data Visualization. Our long term experience in design, media and web technologies comes together with our focus on innovation for science communication and interactive Citizen Science Apps.

WHAT WE DO

Citizen Science Apps & Observatories

With the SPOTTERON Citizen Science Platform (www.spotteron.net) we offer a customizable and affordable system for applications in the areas of Citizen Science, environmental protection and volunteer monitoring. In cooperation with research projects, we develop independent smartphone apps for Android and IOS, interactive applications for browsers such as map applications or citizen science games, and provide a stable and reliable platform for projects. 

Interactive Science Games

Games and gamification elements can be a practical tool for science communication, data analysis and to reach out to new groups. We create custom game apps for science projects and museum exhibtions to immerse visitors and participants and provide a modern learning experience.

Webdesign for Science Sites & Hubs

Having a professional website for science projects, exhibitions or portals is a very important part in a modern online world. Modern websites and hubs are always based on a content management system (CMS) to allow project admins to easily create new content and to have modern features ready like sliders, overview pages and more.

Science Media

We are a visual species. To communicate ideas, present results, promote projects or visualize scientic topics we provide services for professional media production and print design.

  • It is often the case in Citizen Science Apps that participants have different levels of experience, tools, or knowledge levels. Examples of this can emerge in many research topics, from experts on species classification to people with measuring equipment. With the new SPOTTERON platform feature "User Roles," we have created the basis for an extendable system to set up different kinds of participant levels in a Citizen Science App. Read more on the Citizen Science Blog
