Slavery from Space: demonstrating the role for satellite remote sensing to inform evidence-based action related to UN SDG number 8

ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (March 2018),


The most recent Global Slavery Index estimates that there are 40.3 million people enslaved globally. The UN’s Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development Goal number 8, section 8.7 specifically refers to the issue of forced labour: ending modern slavery and human trafficking, including child labour, in all forms by 2025. Although there is a global political commitment to ending slavery, one of the biggest barriers to doing so is having reliable and timely, spatially explicit and scalable data on slavery activity. The ...


Wikipedians reach out to academics



London conference discusses efforts by the online encyclopaedia to enlist the help of scientists. [Excerpt] Wikipedia is among the most frequently visited websites in the world, and one of the most popular places to tap into the world’s scientific and medical information. But scientists themselves are generally wary of it, because it can be edited by anyone, regardless of their level of expertise. At a meeting in London last week, the non-profit website’s volunteer editors reached out to scientists to enlist their help ...


Prodromo della vegetazione italiana



[Excerpt] In attuazione della Strategia Nazionale per la Biodiversità 2011-2020, il Ministero dell’Ambiente e della Tutela del Territorio e del Mare intende divulgare e rendere fruibile il “Prodromo della vegetazione italiana” coniugando, in tal modo, le conoscenze della ricerca scientifica con le esigenze applicative della conservazione, gestione e uso sostenibile della biodiversità. Il Prodromo della Vegetazione d’Italia è uno strumento di lavoro per ricercatori, professionisti, pubblici amministratori e, nello stesso tempo, rappresenta una opportunità di conoscenza per appassionati della natura e ...


Monumental trees

edited by Tim Bekaert


[Excerpt] This site started on a summer's eve in 2003 as a Belgian site about giant sequoia trees in Belgium and The Netherlands. Soon location details were provided by many people from these countries. In 2005 the site was restyled and was also partly available in French and English, but still manually edited by the webmaster. However, in 2010 this became unfeasible for him and the site became, an interactive community site where users could now add trees/measurements/photos themselves, without a single webmaster ...


Good enough? Nichesourcing in data quality assessment

IEEE Earthzine, Vol. 7, No. 4. (2014), 910203


It is tempting to integrate crowdsourced data into our databases for identifying a data quality issue (e.g., “is my Earth observation data still valid?”). Here we present a use case developed during the Linked Map project (part of the EU FP7 project PlanetData) named “nichesourcing of data quality assessment.” In this use case, a small group of expert volunteers assessed if the quality of a conflation of data sourced from an official national map (the BTN25, a National Map database of ...

Crowdsourcing geographic information for disaster response: a research frontier

International Journal of Digital Earth, Vol. 3, No. 3. (15 April 2010), pp. 231-241,


Geographic data and tools are essential in all aspects of emergency management: preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation. Geographic information created by amateur citizens, often known as volunteered geographic information, has recently provided an interesting alternative to traditional authoritative information from mapping agencies and corporations, and several recent papers have provided the beginnings of a literature on the more fundamental issues raised by this new source. Data quality is a major concern, since volunteered information is asserted and carries none of the ...


The Emergence of Social and Community Intelligence

Computer, Vol. 44, No. 7. (July 2011), pp. 21-28,


Social and community intelligence research aims to reveal individual and group behaviors, social interactions, and community dynamics by mining the digital traces that people leave while interacting with Web applications, static infrastructure, and mobile and wearable devices. ...


Citizen Sensing, Social Signals, and Enriching Human Experience

Internet Computing, IEEE, Vol. 13, No. 4. (July 2009), pp. 87-92,


In this article, I introduce the exciting paradigm of citizen sensing enabled by mobile sensors and human computing - that is, humans as citizens on the ubiquitous Web, acting as sensors and sharing their observations and views using mobile devices and Web 2.0 services. ...

Crowd-sourcing: strength in numbers

Nature, Vol. 506, No. 7489. (26 February 2014), pp. 422-423,


Researchers are finding that online, crowd-sourced collaboration can speed up their work if they choose the right problem. [Excerpt] [...] Yet this open approach has taken root as an ongoing crowd-sourcing project called Polymath. [...] Polymath 8 was a triumph for the collaborative approach, says Tao. If mathematicians had been attacking the problem in the standard way, with what he describes as “a flood of mini-papers”, it might have taken years to get the bound down that far. Polymath has not always ...

A collaborative online mathematics project holds lessons for other disciplines. [Excerpt] Crowd-sourcing has reached mathematics, and at first glance it might seem as if this stereotypically solitary discipline is finally catching up with what other sciences have been doing for years. But, as we explore on page 422, the maths project Polymath, which invites participants to pitch in with ideas and results that might help to solve whatever problem the coordinator has set, is in some ways ahead of the curve. Not ...

Meta-information Database (INRMM-MiD).
This database integrates a dedicated meta-information database in CiteULike (the CiteULike INRMM Group) with the meta-information available in Google Scholar, CrossRef and DataCite. The Altmetric database with Article-Level Metrics is also harvested. Part of the provided semantic content (machine-readable) is made even human-readable thanks to the DCMI Dublin Core viewer. Digital preservation of the meta-information indexed within the INRMM-MiD publication records is implemented thanks to the Internet Archive.
