CDN app helps citizen scientists collect ocean data

ONC is Oceans Networks Canada, and they do a lot of very good work. Getting citizen scientists an opportunity to ply their adopted trade is just one of them.

The app, developed by ONC, allows fishers and volunteer citizens participating in PSF’s “citizen science program” to collect data and upload it to ONC’s world-leading data management system, Oceans 2.0. From there, the data is archived, processed and visualized for scientists and the public around the world.
