TOOL: The WeObserve Toolkit includes a wide range of open access tools developed by WeObserve’s partners, i.e., four Citizen Observatories: GROW, Scent, Ground Truth 2.0 and LandSense.
TOOL: The Scent Toolbox is a set of smart technologies designed to engage citizens in environmental monitoring. Using the Scent Toolbox apps, volunteers collect valuable environmental information. For instance, using Scent Explore, citizens can take photos and videos of changes in the environment and with Scent Measure take measurements of soil conditions.
DATA SOURCE: Natusfera is one of the largest Citizen Observatory platforms in the biodiversity domain. Participants can register, organise and share all sorts of biodiversity observations, including photo sharing and location.
DATA SOURCE: Wildlife Sightings is a free platform on which to publish, organise and manage the sighting data of birds, insects, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, aquatic, plants.
DATA SOURCE: SPOTTERON is a smartphone app system (Android and iPhone) for documenting localised and specific sightings. The collected data is edited for evaluation and represented on maps.
DATA SOURCE: The EOSDIS WorldView app from NASA provides the capability to interactively browse over 800 global, full-resolution satellite imagery layers and then download the underlying data. Many of the available imagery layers are updated within three hours of observation, essentially showing the entire Earth as it looks ‘right now’. This supports time-critical application areas such as wildfire management, air quality measurements and flood monitoring. Arctic and Antarctic views of many products are also available for a ‘full globe’ perspective.
DATA SOURCE: ESA SNAP (Sentinel Application Platform). SNAP provides a common architecture for all Sentinel Toolboxes, as well as toolboxes to handle data from other satellite sensors. The different toolboxes implemented for SNAP not only allow users to open, visualise and export satellite data, but they also allow the user to apply different levels of processing, from simple data pre-processing steps to fairly advanced processing chains that can be set up (and batch run) through the Graph Builder tool.
