National Geographic Announces FieldScope for Citizen Science GIS
 
For over 125 years, National Geographic has explored and documented the farthest corners of the planet. FieldScope is an interactive mapping platform that extends the tools of exploration and investigation to everyday science enthusiasts. This digital tool enables citizen scientists to document and understand the world around them––both in the classroom and in outdoor settings.

Using FieldScope, enthusiasts work together to share, analyze, and interpret data. Overlaying that data on a geographic mapping tool such as FieldScope helps to identify larger trends and answer important research questions.

Since 2008, organizations have used FieldScope to engage citizen scientists in documenting and studying topics such as water quality and biodiversity. Fieldscope is also a simple way for organizations to publish their existing data, making valuable information available to the public in an easy-to-use interface.
