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”
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.
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.
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
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.
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.

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
2. WORLD WATER MONITORING DAY provides basic information about streams, lakes and coastal waters to provide a better understanding of whether they are safe enough to swim in, fish from, or use for drinking or irrigation purposes.
2. WORLD WATER MONITORING DAY The monitoring period occurs any day/time between March 22 (World Water Day) and December 31 All data must be entered by December 31 to be included in the years annual report
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
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!
2. WORLD WATER MONITORING DAYLet test the quality of our waterways, share what you find , and protect our most precious resourcehttp://www.worldwatermonitoringday.org/BlogArchives .aspx
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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
3. SCHOOL OF ANTPARTICIPATE STEP sampling ants
3. SCHOOL OF ANT PARTICIPATE STEP: 1. recording data2. http://schoolofants.org/participate 3. Submitting your sample: Confirmation Code
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
3. SCHOOL OF ANT Let see What will you find living in your backyard?
CONCLUSION A distributed system is important to the Citizen science
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
