Citizen science projects are becoming an increasingly popular way for scientists to gather data while also engaging members of a broader community with their research. Science researchers interested in conducting such projects may be interested in Anecdata, a free online portal for environmental-related citizen science projects. Through Anecdata, researchers can share data from Excel, Google Earth, or ArcGIS. Users can then invite others to create online profiles and help with data collection. Anecdata is designed to allow group members to communicate easily with one another during the data collection process. There are also tools to help researchers search the collected data with ease. Those interested in using Anecdata may want to start by checking out the Projects section, which features current Anecdata projects from around the globe.
