Empowering communities to increase our understanding of the world we share.
Citizen science connects communities, scientists, researchers, and educators through research and actively engages the public in the scientific process—from collecting and analyzing water samples to mapping the migration of birds, to identifying new plant and animal species, to monitoring the nesting activities of sea turtles. Together, citizens and scientists can advance our understanding of the world while providing insight into 21st-century environmental issues, including water quality, biodiversity, and climate.
FieldScope is transforming the way organizations and community members engage in citizen science.
With FieldScope’s interactive platform, organizers of field studies can leverage sophisticated graphing and mapping visualization tools and resources to enhance their existing and future citizen science projects. Participants of all ages and backgrounds can then conveniently upload measurements, observations, and media to a shared project database.
