Enriching Citizen-Science data using context, feedback and community-oriented communication

PI: Abhishek Viswanathan, University of Pittsburgh School of Computing and Information



This project builds on research that has involved citizen scientists in the Pittsburgh region in air quality data collection. Through the Year of Data and Society award, the project team has engaged citizen scientists in data analysis to foster increased understanding of the air quality data and how it can be understood to advocate for change. The team hosted a series of data storytelling workshops in April 2022 to empower members of the community to find alternative ways to make sense of environmental data using freely available tools and art-based approaches.
