Check Out the New “GLOBE Teams” Page! Create/Join Location-Based Teams to Track Data-Collection Efforts
GLOBE Community: If you are a GLOBE account holder, you can now create and join teams of people, called “GLOBE Teams,” which will enable you to track your group’s data-collection efforts. GLOBE Teams can be used to set up a competition, coordinate a community’s citizen science efforts, support an educational or corporate initiative, or simply enable a group of people to work together.
Even if you do not belong to a specific learning facility, you can associate your data with an entity that consists of friends, family, and coworkers. (Parents can even share in their child's data-collection efforts with their child's school.) This ability will allow you, and others, to search via your group’s name and find data associated with your group. When you set up a GLOBE Team, you will be able to see how many people are on your team and how many observations your team has made for each GLOBE protocol.
A team may be open to anyone or it may be private. Open teams will be visible to all users. If you create a private team, you will be provided with a referral code that you can use to invite people to join your team. (The private teams are often based in a community, such as an after-school program, library or museum club, or corporate team.) You can even join more than one team.
The possibilities for collaboration are endless!
