Transcript

  • 1. DIY toolsfor environmental sensing
  • 2. …an initiative in Extreme Citizen Science
  • 3. focused community mapping in London Participatory mapping is a tool for spatial data collection. It involves participatory methodologies aimed at supporting and promoting community engagement in decision-makingtackling climatechange in Dorset Preliminary process that lead to the creation of a community map online; community members assess issues of importance and device an action plancommunity mapping
  • 4. community noise mapping
  • 5. monitoring nitrogendioxide… Use of low-tech DIY methods for data collection gave community members the ability to collect relevant local data with which to constructively influence/call for change …& metal particles after data collection the community devised measures they could adopt to reduce exposure to, and production of, harmful emissionsair-quality monitoring
  • 6. Helium- filled weatherballoon balloonmapping camera
  • 7. Kite kite mapping kite-making workshop camerasimple noise monitor
  • 8. mapping a parkmappinga parade mapping forest damage
  • 9. squishy circuits
  • 10. wired circuits
  • 11. temperature & humidity sensor
  • 12. temperature and humidity sensor displays °C, °F and % humiditytemperature & humidity sensor
  • 13. thermal flashlight | hot
  • 14. thermal flashlight | cold

  • 21. air quality egg MQ-7 sensor for CO, DHT temperature & humidity sensor, NO2 sensor on Arduino ProtoShield connected via LANsmartphones asmobile sensorsmobile applications forintelligent maps withgeotagging or noise monitoring indoor air quality more info @ http://publiclaboratory.org/tools sensor & imaging spectrometer & MQ 135 air quality sensor to detect NH3, NOx, alcohol, spectral analysis benzene, smoke and CO2 to identify & analyse unknown solid or liquid materials other tools…
  • 22. DIY manifesto• DIY = empowerment & sense of ownership• DIY = independence• DIY = creativity• DIY = understanding of things and taking charge• DIY = the right to choose• DIY transforms consumers into contributors• DIY is saves you money!
  • 23. …in Extreme Citizen Sciencewe commit principles ofparticipation and inclusion, “…it is a kind ofopenness and acknowledgement, science that questions the state of things”collaboration and creativitywe encourage a science that reduces barriers,increases democratic participation, recognises theimportance of each participant and allows allvoices to be heardExtreme Citizen Science is science by citizens, where anyone,regardless of their background, can take ownership over andinvestigate issues that are of concern to them to bring aboutmeaningful change contact: cindy.regalado.11@ucl.ac.uk website: www.ucl.ac.uk/excites
