  • 2. CITIZEN SCIENCEWhat is citizen science? “Projects or ongoing program of scientific work in which individual volunteers or networks of volunteers, many of whom may have no specific scientific training, perform or manage research- related tasks such as observation, measurement or computation”
  • 3. CITIZEN SCIENCEBenefits: It enables extensive data collection It provides interaction between scientists and the community the ability for projects to inform both groups (scientists and individuals). bringing in volunteers would introduce new questions and thinking Spread awareness of mans impact on the environment.
  • 4. IMPORTANT OF DISTRIBUTED SYSTEM A distributed system is a collection of independent computers that appear to the users of the system as a single system.
  • 5. IMPORTANT OF DISTRIBUTED SYSTEM Citizen science has a lots of volunteers are needed to analyze their date distributed system help by Enabling different nodes send their information Enabling the nodes from different area Enabling the nodes with different architectureTo send their data to one processing system to processit
  • 6. 1. DO YOU FEEL IT? It is a Web site produced by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) The purpose of this site is to gather the information about earthquakes from people and have a real experience of them USGS looks for having a full description of what people tested, the effects of the earthquake and the degree of damage, by taking the advantages of large number of the internet users.
  • 7. 1. DO YOU FEEL IT?By providing information about the earthquake, : Citizen scientists could make a significant contribution to the scientific body of information regarding this earthquake. They will ensure that their areas have been represented in the shaking map Citizen scientists will learn more about how other communities have more understanding of the effects of earthquakes.
  • 8. 1. DO YOU FEEL IT?Project Details: PRINCIPAL SCIENTIST: David Wald, Supervisory Research Geophysicist SCIENTIST AFFILIATION: USGS National Earthquake Information Center DATES: Ongoing PROJECT TYPE: Questionnaire COST: Free GRADE LEVEL: All Ages TIME COMMITMENT: Variable HOW TO JOIN: Visit the USGS Did You Feel It? Web site.
  • 9. 2. WORLD WATER MONITORING DAY International education and outreach program that builds public awareness and involvement in protecting water resources around the world Done by the citizens

  • 12. 2. WORLD WATER MONITORING DAY There is no fee to participate in the program To get your test kit you can take from LaMotte Company, Sword Scientific, and Ansam and they accept MasterCard, VISA, and American Express In 2011, approximately 340,000 people in 77 countries monitored their local waterway
  • 13. 2. WORLD WATER MONITORING DAY participants are encouraged to write stories and publishing photos highlighting their events on the WWMC Web site and on their own Web sites and publications. Their plan is the Involvement leads to information more involvement which leads to meeting the goal of one million people monitoring by 2014!
  • 14. 2. WORLD WATER MONITORING DAYLet test the quality of our waterways, share what you find , and protect our most precious resource .aspx
  • 15. 3. SCHOOL OF ANT citizen-scientist project aim to study the ants live in urban areas Participation is open to anyone interested Dr. Andrea Lucky heads the School of Ants project Their Email
  • 16. 3. SCHOOL OF ANTThe Aim: create map to introduced ants in cities, not just here in North Carolina, but across the United States and, as this project grows, the world The map arranged each type and where is live
  • 17. 3. SCHOOL OF ANTPARTICIPATE STEP sampling ants
  • 18. 3. SCHOOL OF ANT PARTICIPATE STEP: 1. recording data2. 3. Submitting your sample: Confirmation Code
  • 19. 3. SCHOOL OF ANTEXPERIMENT•Katherine found a living rare kind of ant•This discovery made Katherine one of thefirst people ever to see this rare species ofant alive under the microscope!•As a result, Katherine Driscoll was still ahigh school student when she startedworking in the Dunn Lab
  • 20. 3. SCHOOL OF ANT Let see What will you find living in your backyard?
  • 21. CONCLUSION A distributed system is important to the Citizen science
  • 22. CONCLUSION Citizen science is great project It shortcut the time for the expert Allow the data to analyze by professional , this helpful for the poor countries Let Make the world better for us and the next generations
