Package L for custom interactive maps

Thursday, 19 April 2018 13:13

Not every citizen science project has the need for own custom smartphone apps. Starting with April 2018, we offer a light-weight SPOTTERON package for Citizen Science projects, which provides an innovative web tool for desktop browsers..


As already a part of the common SPOTTERON packages A and B, the interactive map offers the same functionality as the smartphone apps, but in the desktop environment. From submitting own observations to the innovative SPOTTERON community features - the interactive map includes almost every tool and extension which the apps also already offer. The maps can be easily embedded in every project homepage and offer a seemless project experience for the Citizen Scientists.

The main difference are the monthly costs:
We can offer the new package L at a much smaller price-tag, since the whole work-package of constantly maintaining smartphone applications for Android and iOS can be dropped.

Ideal for smaller Citizen Science projects, the SPOTTERON package L enables to run your own community science on a high quality basis with many innovative features for researchers and Citizen Scientists alike. For sure, all interactive map projects are also constantly supported by our team and receive all SPOTTERON updates and upcoming extensions of the digital ecosystem of the platform.

You can find real-life examples of the interactive map "in action" here:

To celebrate the official launch of the new SPOTTERON Package L for Citizen Science, we want to offer this web-based toolkit with all features of the SPOTTERON platform without the regular setup fee to the first 2 projects! Interested? Let's get in contact!


  • New in our blog series: the Tea Bag Index (TBI) collects data on soil observations and in particular on the dynamics of soil decomposition. The degradation of organic matter in the soil is part of the global carbon cycle, which provides information about the biological activity of the soil and is therefore important for climate change.
