Citizen Science is a collection of maps and apps that can be used by conservation staff to collect sightings of plants and animals from citizen scientists and monitor citizen science programs.
When you deploy Citizen Science in your ArcGIS organization, you will get a series of ArcGIS web applications used to engage with citizen scientists, manage incoming reports and monitor citizen science programs.
Conservation staff can configure and share the entire collection of citizen science solutions; or configure and share an individual solution that meets their specific needs.
To deploy Citizen Science using the ArcGIS Solutions Deployment Tool requires specific software.
Citizen Science can be deployed in your ArcGIS organization without downloading the solution. When you deploy Citizen Science in your organization, you'll find the following:
