Panel description:

In a world rife with alternative facts and the disappearance of critically important datasets, public engagement in the production of spatial data and analysis is urgently needed. Thanks to low-barrier access to cameras, drones, mobile devices, and a plethora of open-source software, engagement is now possible for many people. This panel will discuss how to collect data through public participation and explore ways to get involved in citizen-led scientific efforts.

This panel included Britta Ricker, Mathew Lippencott and Adam Brunelle, and was moderated by Jennifer Veilleux.
