Please note that this is a demonstration site with limited features. The whole framework can be customised with the project information, content deliverables, final products and services. The main purpose is to get an idea on how a project can use OpenCosmos and its community in order to disseminate, exploit the project results and activities among OpenCosmos closed community that comprises more than 35000 research and innovator actors from its members, i.e. 8 Universities, 3 industry and SME associations, one regional authority and two innovative companies from 10 countries in Europe and it is continually expanding.

Key purpose

One of the biggest challenges of citizen science is the quality of data, as well as maintaining the citizen observatories used to collect this data. Cos4Cloud is addressing these challenges by developing thirteen technological services to improve citizen science platforms, also known as citizen observatories, to help them boost the quantity and the quality of observations and, finally, to help ensure their long-term viability.

Core Project Results

This project has produced 3 pilots/demonstrators, i.e. 

  1. General purpose integration platform  to allow users to interact simultaneously from different sources of data
  2. A data quality platform that validates biodiversity observations by experts 
  3. A platform for interactive pre-processing camera trap images that a) automatically filter most if not all of the unwanted pictures and b) propose the species name.
