February GLOBE Tech Update
As always, GLOBE continues to work to ensure that your “use” of the website, and associated apps, is as user-friendly as possible. Phase 1 of the Data Entry app merger into GLOBE Observer will now be taking place later this month (February). This new date is due to the needs and requirements of completing the upcoming app merger and updates. For phase 1 of the Data Entry app merger, the atmosphere protocols will be added into the GLOBE Observer app. This will allow users to add temperature, rainfall, and other atmospheric measurements directly within the GLOBE Observer app. It will also allow the general public to more easily participate with GLOBE by making observations as a citizen scientist.
Also in late February, look for the Mosquito Habitat Mapper tool within the GLOBE Observer app to receive an update. In addition, there will be a new ability to submit GLOBE observations to SciStarter. (SciStarter is the place to find, join, and contribute to science through providing people access to searchable formal and informal research projects and events.)
