Interactive maps

You can integrate your own SPOTTERON project directly in your website via iFrame and allow submission also for desktop users.

Each Citizen Science toolset on the SPOTTERON platform comes with a web-application called the "interactive map". This web-app allows Citizen Scientists to enter data simply via browser on their laptop or desktop and offers all key-features of the smartphone apps, including the Citizen Science community.

The interactive map brings the Citizen Science experience to the browser. Embeddable in every website simply by an iframe HTML code, the interactive map allows data submission via laptop or desktop computer and offers a fullscreen experience for visitors and participants. The map comes with all the features and extensions, which also are available the smartphone apps, including all the community tools like comments, hearts (likes), top spots and much more.

The interactive maps, which are available as core tool in the light-weight package L, ideal for projects with smaller grants or funding, are great for browsing the data of a project, while the smartphone apps of the SPOTTERON Package A and B are optimized for outdoor use. It is often used in projects as an alternative for data submission afterwards or as a fall-back tool, if e.g. a Citizen Scientist doesn't have a smartphone or do not want to install new apps.
