How can you best develop a data collection project, ensure that high quality data is collected and achieve maximum impact? The AfriAlliance Handbook on Data Collection focusses on the development sector and the collection of data, mainly by people, and covers the main elements to consider when designing and implementing a data collection project. Where applicable, it will also point you to more detailed resources.
The Making Sense Toolkit. This resource will teach you how to scope your questions, identify and nurture relevant communities, and plan an effective campaign. It will then help you gather data and evidence, interpret your findings, build awareness and achieve tangible outcomes. Finally, it will show you how to reflect on these outcomes, and offers suggestions on how you can leave a lasting legacy
With Epicollect you can collect individualised geotag information together with pictures via smartphones (Android and iPhone) and present it on a project website which has been created specifically for this purpose
This guide aims to support people already involved in citizen science, and those new to it. It is based on detailed information gathered and analysed as part of the UK-EOF funded project “Understanding Citizen Science & Environmental Monitoring”. It will help you to design and implement a citizen science project relating to biodiversity or the environment.
