crowd sourcing efforts in the remote sensing and spatial thinking realms

My colleague Patrick Meier tweeted about the effort to crowdsource sea floor images, evaluating the images to ascertain population counts of sea scallops.  It reminded me of similar citizen science efforts at validating land cover, and folding proteins. I remember that the Jane Goodall Institute is also contributing to or managing another forest / land cover effort too, but can’t find it right now.

Patrick has written about such efforts in the humanitarian realm as well.

It takes a village + geospatial technologies = progress.
