Abstract

The Digital Earth Watch program and the Boston Museum of Science have developed an environmental monitoring device called a PicturePost. The PicturePost project had been implemented in an educational setting but faced many obstacles. The project required more participants. The main goal of our project was to involve the Boston area's non-profit organizations. To encourage the organizations' participation we made recommendations to resolve the issues experienced by the educators including the website, uploading process, and the user guides. By solving those problems and gaining more participation, the PicturePost program has a better layout for reaching its educational and scientific potential.
