Why host a citizen science project on FieldScope?

  • Graphing and Mapping Tools: Your data comes to life in a new way through our maps and graphs, with many possibilities for engagement and analysis. See our visualizations page for examples.
  • Storytelling with Data: Your program manager and project contributors can create and share maps and graphs to tell stories about the data that have been collected.
