Citizen Science - Camaliot

| No Comments

I love citizen science. Interested people can do useful participation in scientific observation. I already belong to a few of these programs and just discovered this new one:

From the Camaliot website:

Collect data from satellites for scientific research in weather forecasting
The Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) is a set of satellites that orbit the Earth.

These GNSS satellites provide valuable information to many different location-based applications from the satnav in your car to flying a plane. But we can also use the data for scientific research.

We developed the CAMALIOT app to gather data from these satellites, taking advantage of new developments in mobile technology to collect and access the raw GNSS data from Android phones.

All the data are gathered by individuals like you. You don't have to be a scientist, you just need to have access to an Android mobile phone with your GPS turned on.

In return, you are helping to build better weather forecasting models, and there is a chance to win prizes at the end of the campaign.

To use the app you need to keep the phone stationary with a direct view of the sky so not something you can have as a background task while you are running errands.  Still... 

Google Play store if you are interested.  Android only...
