The WeObserve team ran the second face-to-face session, CoP-interoperability, Interoperability and Standards for Citizen Observatories, within the COWM Conference on 27/11/2018, 14:50-17:50,  in Venice. The CoP-interoperability, led by Joan Maso from CREAF, aimed to improve interoperability among citizen science data and services. It conducted Interoperability experiments under the OGC umbrella, and had its first experiment underway. The discussions in the session considered aspects and challenges for standardizing data and tools for citizen observations. Activities and demos were presented from the four working groups of the Interoperability Experiment (vocabularies, data sharing, data quality, and single sign-on).

More specifically, CoP-interoperability session addressed the following topics:

  • Standard vocabularies for Citizen Science, including project description metadata;
  • The use of OGC standards (e.g. SWE4CS) to support data integration among CS projects, and with other sources, esp. authoritative data;
  • The integration of CS projects/campaigns in Single Sign-On system (SSO) federation;
  • Data quality assessment and documentation
