Citizen Science Ontology

Next Steps

  • Rob: create table with overview on project metadata provided provided in different portals
  • All: provide input on related work in paper
  • All: Think about alterntives since COSIT deadline is approaching and we may not be able to finish in time (Deadline March 1st); maybe think about submitting a poster?
  • NEXT TELCO: Feb 28th, 20:00 CET
  • General:
    • decide on tools (WebProtege?,yEd?)
    • discuss about potential co-authors/contributors

Objectives of the Ontology

  • Common Understanding of Citizen Science and VGI
    • Find Commonalities in order to develop common database/XML schemas and application frameworks
  • Discovery/Description of Citizen Science Projects
  • Integrating/connecting data sets:
    • VGI/Crowdsourced Observations
    • Higher Level Information/Analysis Results
  • (Formalization of Tasks)

Citizen Science Projects

Related Ontologies/Vocabularies

Paper structure

  • Introduction/Motivation
    • Different Citizen Science Portals: Buergerschaffenwissen, Belgium, NL, US, ...
    • all are providing project metadata, but in different structures, with different concepts
    • GOAL: Identify subset of common concepts across the portals that is essential for describing the projects and integrating the project descriptions
  • Background:
    • DCAT, Provo, ... (Jano)
    • Energic VGI (Rob)
    • SWE & Citizen Science (Christoph/Simon)
  • Comparison of Concepts in different Portals (Rob)
  • Core Concepts for Citizen Science Projects
    • description of the core concepts (yed graph)
    • OWL implementation
  • Application Example
    • Cross-domain query: example searching for projects in air quality domain and finding enviroCar.
  • Discussion
  • Conclusions
