Geographic Citizen Science Design, No one left behind

Geographic Citizen Science Design is a new field of scientific practice and innovation that allows citizens to become scientists and contribute to scientific disciplines without professional qualifications. The book takes an anthropological and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) stance to provide theoretical and methodological foundations to support the design, development, and evaluation of citizen science projects and their user-friendly applications. The book captures the current state of the art in research and development of geographic citizen science and provides critical insight to inform technological innovation and future research in this area. The book also includes case studies that provide insights into design and interaction barriers and lessons learned from engaging a diverse set of participants.
