Mobilizing the world’s natural history: Open data + citizen science
Margaret Gold
The Natural History Museum is embarking on an epic journey to digitize 80 million specimens from one of the world’s most important natural history collections. But alongside this, the museum’s citizen science projects invite you to actively contribute to its science research. Margaret explains where the two meet and how they might change the face of natural history.
