    Title

    Citizen Science in Global Earth Observation Systems

    Description

    This three hour joint Global Technical Session is the second event in a three year series focusing on the role of Citizen Science and crowd sourcing in Global Earth Observation science investigations. It follows the IAC Global Networking Forum kick-off event at the 2017 IAC, Adelaide. This session includes scientific methodology and results, technical challenges and pitfalls, guidelines for success, policy and educational aspects, and benefits of Citizen Science and crowd sourcing in Global Earth Observation science investigations. Experiences from past and present projects and methods for how to best involve people from around the globe are encouraged. The selected papers may be presented either in person or by virtual participants. During the last hour we will hold a panel discussion to engage the global audience, and invite authors to participate. This joint session is organized through a continuing partnership between IAF Subcommittee on Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) and IAF’s Workforce Development and Young Professional Programme (WD/YPP) in collaboration with the Bremen IAC Local Organizing Committee.
