The GLOBE Observer App
The GLOBE Zika Education and Prevention project utilizes the GLOBE Observer App to collect mosquito larvae observations in participating GLOBE countries. The app allows citizen scientists to train in the GLOBE Mosquito Protocol, identify disease-carrying mosquitoes, eliminate their breeding sites, and prevent future Zika outbreaks.
The Mosquito Habitat Mapper
Prior to the GLOBE Observer App, only certified teachers and schools within GLOBE countries were able to use GLOBE protocols. Now, with the GLOBE Observer App, any citizen scientist in a GLOBE country is able to participate in GLOBE. Within the GLOBE Observer App, there are two protocols: GLOBE Clouds and the GLOBE Mosquito Habitat Mapper. This project will create hundreds of thousands of new mosquito larvae observations within the Mosquito Habitat Mapper!
By using the GLOBE Observer App, you are joining the GLOBE community and contributing important scientific data to NASA and GLOBE, your local community, and students and scientists worldwide.
