About Tools

Online tools for each of the steps.

These lists, gleaned initially from the 2007 Citizen Science Toolkit Conference working group reports, are just a snapshot of  tools available online. We recognize that more innovative sites will continue to be developed and/or uncovered. We will only rarely link to any fee-based sites, and links do not imply an endorsement. When our discussion site becomes active, we will invite you to rate online tools and to add to the list.

Find more Web Tools for Citizen Science Organizations on Terrie Miller's fantastic citizen science blog.
