Citizen Science Game: Identifying iNaturalist Animals via Gamification

Started June 17, 2022

Abstract or project description

In recent years, there has been a huge emphasis on contributing to citizen science. However, contributing towards citizen science doesn't retain attention or engagement that effectively, which is why a lot of attention has turned towards the usage of video games. In this project, I am trying to develop a citizen science game for players to contribute towards the iNaturalist wildlife database by classifying/identifying animal observations with the correct species. My hypothesis is that gamification through the addition of a meaningful gameplay mechanic will increase user engagement while contributing to citizen science.
