Pilot study into optimal crowdsourcing processes for NH institutions
In collaboration with the JRA, a two-phase pilot project will be completed. Phase 1 will identify which are the most appropriate target groups for crowdsourcing. The review will include general public, amateur taxonomists/retired experts and other researchers. This will be achieved by: i) mapping the current Users of the collection facilities and then identify who are the ‘Power Users’; ii) data mine social media for active cyber users with a clear interest in biodiversity. These users will then be approached to engage in the crowdsourcing website development and testing.
