Scientific domains

The work in the citizenMorph project – reporting landforms, processing data, and gainig new insights- is related to a number of different scientific disciplines.

The following figure shows how citizens and scientists collaborate together within the different scientific domains.

  1. Citizens discover interesting landforms in nature. They report them (or part of them) by locating the landforms and adding pictures of them via the  citizenMorph App.
  2. Entry in a online map (also called Geomedia)
  3. The locations and pictures can be used to create maps and 3D models of the landforms. The 3D models can be compared with results obtained from satellite imagery. Combining remote sensing data with data collected on the field allows to gain new insights and to map and describe landforms in detail. This helps to better understand how landforms change. Field observations are of great value for site-specific investigations and continuous observations of landscape dynamics and changes.
