GLOBE Community: Create a “GLOBE Team” Today – Data Collection Made Easy!

GLOBE's Tip of the Week Icon

GLOBE Community: If you are a GLOBE account holder, you can 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, 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.  A team may be open to anyone or it may be restricted to those who are invited to join through a referral code. The private teams are often based in a community, such as an after-school program, library or museum club, or corporate team. Open teams will be visible to all users. You can even join more than one group!
