Projects, data,
tools and technology

This working group aims to formalize a common understanding of interests in the citizen science data space, analyzing problems that citizen science projects face regarding data (e.g. interoperability, reliability, privacy, intellectual property rights). To do so, it collaborates with other technical organizations (e.g. the Open Geospatial Consortium) and other citizen science associations (e.g. CSA, ACSA).
