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.

Community Maps

Community Maps is an accessible and easy to use participatory mapping platform that visualises user generated data. The interface provides functionality to edit existing GeoKey data and create new contributions. Relevant information can be shared and discussed within and across communities. .
