In many fields – also for citizen science and citizen science projects – geomedia are used. Geomedia refer to different types of media providing also spatial information. They offer scientists numerous opportunities to gain additional results and insights. For example, maps can be used to show the distribution or location of features under investigation and to analyze these in connection with other aspects. In the framework of many projects, citizens are invited to report various things with their location and other characteristics using mobile apps and online maps.
