Glacier National Park
The Common Loon Citizen Science Project in Glacier National Park is currently dealing with an uneven distribution of citizen scientists and the over involvement of staff. In order to mitigate this uneven distribution of citizen scientists, our group was asked to develop a tool that would allow citizen scientists to redirect their focus based on the number of surveys at different lakes. Our group developed a mapping application that displays basic information about the different lakes in the park so that citizen scientists can efficiently plan out their survey sites, decreasing the involvement of the staff and promoting a more even distribution of data points throughout the park’s lakes.
