GLOBE Community: GLOBE Observer App Has a Mosquito Habitat Mapper – Citizen Science Made Easy!

GLOBE's Tip of the Week Icon

Tip of the Week: The GLOBE Observer App, which is available in iOS and Android formats, allows anyone in a GLOBE country to enter data about clouds directly into the GLOBE database. It includes a new tool – a Mosquito Habitat Mapper. This tool supports citizen scientists in efforts to map, count, and identify mosquito larvae found in breeding sites! 

The app supports multiple languages. Based on input from users, an optional notification system lets Observers know when their local solar noon is occurring and when a satellite is flying over so they can compare their measurements with NASA measurements.

Join us and become a GLOBE Observer. Just download the GLOBE Observer App and use it to observe the environment wherever you are. When you download the app, the Mosquito Habitat Mapper will automatically update to include the new tool.
