Extreme Citizen Science Analysis and Visualisation – final event

Today is the first day after the end of the European Research Council (ERC) funded “Extreme Citizen Science: Analysis and visualisation”. For me, it’s an important milestone. In July 2007, Jerome Lewis got in touch with me about the need to develop data collection and visualisation to protect and nurture forest communities. This effort evolved into the Extreme Science group, and through the effort of many people – about 40 researchers that worked with us on the projects “Extreme Citizen Science” and “Extreme Citizen Science: Analysis and Visualisation”, we now have a working prototype and process for data collection and visualisation that can support indigenous groups while respecting their needs and rights. We have plenty of papers to demonstrate that and a fantastic book.

In early July, we had the final event to share the outputs from the project. The recording could be better in terms of audio, but you can get a good sense of the project through these presentations.
