2 Science Framework Increasing Spatial & Temporal Scale PI Lab Science

3 Framework Increasing Spatial & Temporal Scale PI Lab Lab Consortium Science

4 Sharing Information Increasing Spatial & Temporal Scale NEON PI Lab Lab Consortium Science Papers, Data not archived Papers, Friends share data Community Data Archived

5 Sharing Information Increasing Spatial & Temporal Scale NEON PI Lab Lab Consortium Science Papers, Data not archived Papers, Friends share data Community Data Archived Increasingly Specialized Role for People and Need for Science Library Infrastructure

6 Framework Increasing Spatial & Temporal Scale NEON PI Lab Lab Consortium Science Increasing % of Volunteer Effort

7 Framework Increasing Spatial & Temporal Scale NEON PI Lab Lab Consortium Naturalist Science Citizen Science

8 CitSci Framework Increasing Spatial & Temporal Scale NEON PI Lab Lab Consortium Naturalist Natural History Club or Watershed Group eBird Science Citizen Science Observation to Reviewed Shared Record (RSR)

9 Data Quality - IG Factor

10 The Invisible Gorilla by Christopher Chabris & Daniel Simons Attention Memory Confidence Knowledge Cause Illusions of

11 Data Quality 1)Quality Assurance Project Plans 2)Initial and continued Training of Observers 3)Rating Observers 4)Experience in participation 5)Review by more experienced observers 6)Electronic Filtering based on previous data collected 7)Recheck with Observer 8)Digital Voucher

12 Working in Teams Remembering what motivates and what discourages citizens Domain experts Interface designer EducatorsSoftware Engineers Scientists

13 Know the Human Observation Sensor! From a stroll by the stream to RSRs

14 Use Common Names -- Standards: Common names in the Global Names Service Architecture Tools that: Promote field naturalists groups to standardize names and interact with taxonomists

15 More Explicit Support for Data Quality As more citizen science data gets published and used, especially in conjunction with other data, scientists want to now about data quality.

16 Support for Ecological Studies Habitats Microhabitats Methods for observations - Sampling effort Ecological relationships

17 Tools with User Interfaces for Mobile Phones and Pads
