Extreme Citizen Science (ExCiteS)




Sapelli is a new mobile data collection and sharing platform designed with a particular focus on non-literate and illiterate users with little or no prior ICT experience. The platform plays a central role in ExCiteS’ mission – which is to develop theories, tools and methodologies to enable any community, anywhere to engage in citizen science.


GeoKey is a platform for participatory mapping. GeoKey provides communities with a web-based infrastructure to collect, share and discuss local knowledge. It’s key features are to set up data structures, user rights management, photo and video upload, discussions and a REST API to access and share data. Community members can use GeoKey to setup their own mapping project and to collect, visualise and analyse data using their tools of choice.
