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!



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!

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.

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.

  • Unsere Projektpartner Agroscope Schweiz und Catta haben soeben einen Meilenstein verkündet: Im Citizen Science Projekt Beweisstück Unterhose haben dieses Frühjahr über tausend Personen Unterhosen und Teebeutel vergraben um so mehr über die Beschaffenheit des Bodes herauszufinden. Nun ist es soweit, die Teilnehmer graben ihre vergrabenen Testobjekte wieder aus um sie ins Labor zu schicken und zu untersuchen. Lesen Sie mehr dazu im Citizen Science Blog!
