Learning about Integrated Pest Management (IPM) for Citizen Science

SPOTTERON Citizen Science App Design
One of the beautiful things in developing #CitizenScience Apps on @SPOTTERON for research projects is that we always learn something new. In every App project, making inquiries about the topic, scope, and science is crucial for designing the data structure input dialogue and the look & feel of a new Citizen Science App on the platform. Integrat...

Planning for the IPM Popillia Citizen Science App

Preview Mockup of a IPM Popillia Citizen Science App Preview Mockup of a IPM Popillia Citizen Science App
With the new year approaching, we at SPOTTERON have started planning and creating concepts for the IPM Popillia Citizen Science App for public participation. In this early stage, options are present for either having a focussed App for discovering the Popillia japonica beetle in already infested regions or to think on a broader scale for ...
