Sapelli

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 – and will soon be made broadly available.
