Federal Crowdsourcing and Citizen Science Toolkit

Short Description

Crowdsourcing and citizen science help federal agencies to innovate, collaborate and discover. In this toolkit, you will learn how to design and maintain projects. You can also read through case studies and access additional resources related to communities that practice crowdsourcing and citizen science.

In crowdsourcing, organizations submit an open call for voluntary assistance from a large group of individuals for online, distributed problem solving.

In citizen science, the public participates voluntarily in the scientific process, addressing real-world problems in ways that include formulating research questions, conducting scientific experiments, collecting and analyzing data, interpreting results, making new discoveries, developing technologies and applications, and solving complex problems.
