CREAF’s role in the European strategy of fostering citizen observatories for environmental monitoring3 de July 2018Anna Ramon Revilla
CREAF is heading a community of practice that is leading the first citizen science interoperability experiment of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). The goal is for citizen science projects to adopt international standards with a view to data being shared and reused.
In 2017, CREAF produced 231 SCI papers, the highest number in its history. 87% have been published in scientific journals of the first quartile. three of them in Science, and one in Nature Climate Change.
European products derived from satellite and in-situ data describe the status and the temporal evolution of the planet and, combined with others, will help to understand how human activities are contributing to global change. A better organized European contribution will have even bigger influence in informed decision making.
