New Citizen Science features in SPOTTERON 0.2.4

If you've subscribed to our newsletter, its no big news at all: Last week, the new Citizen Science project by Vetenskap och Allmänhet (Science and Public) and the Universities of Gothenburg and Stockholm has been pre-released on Android and is in review by Apple. Time to go into depth what new features are available also for your own Citizen Science project in SPOTTERON!

 

SPOT DETAIL VIEW

A big design overhaul! The new detail view is more clearly arranged and now has a readmore button implemented for longer user comments. All spot updates are displayed in a visual grid below the spot contents and the currently viewed entries are listed as animated bullets above. And yes - you can now swipe left and right while browsing!

SPOT UPDATE GRID

The new interface for spot updates is one of the key aspects of this SPOTTERON update. Originally just a chronological timeline with simple buttons, the updates are now real "inventories" of locations with advanced display and animation. Furthermore, we improved the way, Citizen Scientists can put in the data: spot updates now can be bound to specific categories with their own data sets.

ADD SPOT INTERFACE AND MORE

Some extensions there, too: We have now the possibility to use headlines directly in the interface to create a better structure - a must for longer data sets.

Furthermore, many detail improvements found their way into the new SPOTTERON version like a changing logo by language or updated zoom behaviors for better usabilty. And of course - all the new features are working in the interactive maps for desktop users of the projects, too.

  • Summertime and the living is easy - especially for Citizen Scientists contributing their observations to projects running on the SPOTTERON platform.
    Excursions and field trips are excellent opportunities to observe nature in all its glory. From the phenological development of indicator plants for projects such as Climate Watch Australia or the ZAMG Nature's Calendar to mammal observations in Kenya via the MAKENYA App - there are plenty of different scientific fields in which citizens and scientists can engage in the collection of valuable scientific data via the SPOTTERON apps when they're out and about.

  • At SPOTTERON, we create Citizen Science Apps for a wide array of scientific fields. One of the most exciting topics in Citizen Science is phenology, the study of periodic events in biological life cycles and how seasonal variations influence these in climate.  SPOTTERON currently houses two major phenology projects on the platform, the ZAMG Naturkalender (Nature's Calendar) from Austria and Climate Watch Australia - the first phenology project of its kind in the southern hemisphere.
