SciStarter and Azavea, with a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation,  spent the past year investigating developments in software, hardware and data processing capability for citizen science.

The results of this research are assembled in this four-part report.  The first part, Data Collection Platform Evaluation, examines existing online software platforms designed to support citizen science.  The second, Technology Evaluation, describes recent technology related to sensors, data collection and data visualization.  The last two parts include a set of user interface designs for a future citizen science data collection platform and the results of testing cloud computing platforms for geospatial data processing performance.
