Stanford University. Stanford University (officially Leland Stanford Junior University) is a private research university in Stanford, California, and one of the world's most prestigious institutions,[8][9][10][11] with the top position in numerous surveys and measures in the United States.[12][13][14][15][16][17][18] Stanford was founded in 1885 by Leland Stanford, former governor of and U.S. senator from California and leading railroad tycoon, and his wife, Jane Lathrop Stanford, in memory of their only child, Leland Stanford, Jr., who had died of typhoid fever at age 15 the previous year.

Stanford University

Stanford was opened on October 1, 1891[2][3] as a coeducational and non-denominational institution. Stanford is located in northern Silicon Valley near Palo Alto, California. University of California, Berkeley. The University of California, Berkeley (also referred to as Berkeley, UC Berkeley, California or simply Cal)[8] is a major public research university located in Berkeley, California.

University of California, Berkeley

It is the flagship campus of the University of California system, one of three parts in the state's public higher education plan, which also includes the California State University system and the California Community Colleges System. It is considered by Times Higher Education as a member of a group of six university brands that lead in world reputation rankings in 2015[9] and is ranked third on the U.S. News' 2015 Best Global Universities rankings conducted in the U.S. and nearly 50 other countries.[10] The Academic Ranking of World Universities also ranks the University of California, Berkeley, fourth in the world, third in engineering, fourth in social sciences and first in mathematics & life sciences.[11] The university is also well known for producing a high number of entrepreneurs.[12][13][14] About. From hikers to hunters, birders to beach-combers, the world is filled with naturalists, and many of us record what we find.


What if all those observations could be shared online? You might discover someone who finds beautiful wildflowers at your favorite birding spot, or learn about the birds you see on the way to work. If enough people recorded their observations, it would be like a living record of life on Earth that scientists and land managers could use to monitor changes in biodiversity, and that anyone could use to learn more about nature. That's the vision behind So if you like recording your findings from the outdoors, or if you just like learning about life, join us!

Citizen scientist site hits one million observations of life on Earth

Image courtesy of iNaturalist. On Friday, Jonathan Hiew from Singapore took a photo of several insects and uploaded them on the citizen scientist site, iNaturalist. Little did he know that one of the photos, of a butterfly, would prove a record breaker: it was the millionth observation recorded on iNaturalist. To commemorate the occasion, iNaturalist has released an interactive map showing just what one million observations looks like around the world.

望著偌大的「サービス終了のお知らせ」字樣,各種想法在腦海裡翻攪著。 最近一次使用虫判定器,恰好就在二月底,趁著二二八連假難得的好天氣,出遊去了一趟關西吃便當。 休息站公園裡,台灣欒樹下,非常顯眼地冒現一叢又一叢的小小紅色椿象。 每年相彷季節很容易發現的這種小小紅色椿象,究竟叫作什麼呢? 於是,想到拍照送去虫判定器。 一如既往,檔案傳送成功後,虫判定器給了一個預估鑑定完成時間。 沒想到,三月中就發現了「サービス終了のお知らせ」這樣的服務終止宣告。 沒錯,虫判定器的鑑定結果只能提供到「目」這個分類層級。 仔細思考起來,選擇只搭配維基百科這個模式,似乎是虫判定器的一大致命傷。 但,虫判定器所提供的線索,還是足以讓人繼續追查到這種小小紅色椿象的本名,原來是「紅姬緣椿象(Leptocoris augur)」。 App是什麼?虫判定器! - Jas9 Taipei.設計誌. 據說近兩年來,行政院合計花費5,240多萬元推出108個App。

What kind of beetle? This app knows

An update to Project Noah app will be launched in December The app also seeks to create personal connections to the natural world Free app features challenges to encourage people to learn about nearby plants and animals (CNN) -- Ever seen a tree and wondered if it was a maple or an oak? Bespectacled scientists of yore would carry around hefty field guides, made up of hundreds of pages of text and photos.

But these days, smartphone owners have a lighter option: an app called Project Noah, which aims to help people identify plants and animals as well as collect data from "citizen scientists" about where certain species are located. The app asks people to upload photos, GPS coordinates and other anecdotal info about wildlife they see. About. Project Noah is an award-winning software platform designed to help people reconnect with the natural world.


Launched out of NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program in early 2010, the project began as an experiment to mobilize citizen scientists and build a digital butterfly net for the 21st century. Backed by National Geographic, Project Noah is mobilizing a new generation of nature explorers and helping people from around the world appreciate their local wildlife. Our community is harnessing the power and popularity of new mobile technologies to collect important ecological data and help preserve global biodiversity. Our ultimate goal is to build the go-to platform for documenting all the world’s organisms, and through doing this we hope to develop an effective way to measure Mother Nature’s pulse.

Encyclopedia of Life and iNaturalist work together to support citizen science. New free iPhone application allows professionals and amateurs to collaborate on shared species observation projects Washington, DC - June 18, 2012 - The Encyclopedia of Life (EOL), in collaboration with iNaturalist, is pleased to announce support for citizen science “observation checklists.”

Encyclopedia of Life and iNaturalist work together to support citizen science

Using the free tools provided by EOL and iNaturalist, approved species lists created on EOL can now be turned into mobile observation checklists on the free iNaturalist iPhone application (app) and the iNaturalist website. Observations made through the iPhone app in the field can be shared with the world through iNaturalist, where observations are organized, managed and posted for others to see. The new capabilities announced today address an urgent need to link reliable information about biological diversity with the tools to easily record species observations. Joining forces with iNaturalist has been an excellent pilot project for EOL to launch these participatory citizen science capabilities. Dr. iNaturalist. iNaturalist is citizen science project and online social network of naturalists, citizen scientists, and biologists built on the concept of mapping and sharing observations of biodiversity across the globe.[2] Observations may be added via the website or from a mobile application.[3][4] The observations provide valuable open data to a variety of scientific research projects, museums, botanic gardens, parks, and other organizations.[5][6] .[7] Users of iNaturalist have contributed over one million observations since its founding in 2008.[8] History[edit] began in 2008 as a UC Berkeley School of Information Master's final project of Nate Agrin, Jessica Kline, and Ken-ichi Ueda.[1] Nate Agrin and Ken-ichi Ueda continued work on the site with Sean McGregor, a web developer.

In 2011, Ueda began collaboration with Scott Loarie, a research fellow at Stanford University and lecturer at UC Berkeley. Ueda and Loarie are the current co-directors of See also[edit] Crowdsourcing. Crowdsourcing is a sourcing model in which individuals or organizations obtain goods and services. These services include ideas and finances, from a large, relatively open and often rapidly-evolving group of internet users; it divides work between participants to achieve a cumulative result. The word crowdsourcing itself is a portmanteau of crowd and outsourcing, and was coined in 2005.[1][2][3][4] As a mode of sourcing, crowdsourcing existed prior to the digital age (i.e. "offline").[5] There are major differences between crowdsourcing and outsourcing.
