Citizense

Citizense

A multi-lingual platform for everyone to launch and participate in data collection campaigns. Join the platform and act as campaign creator (who defines the campaign), or as participant (to collect the data), or both. This platform also allows real-time monitoring and visualizing of the collected results.

Campaign author

You can create a data collecting process (a campaign) on the topic of your choice by this online campaign manager. The results of your campaigns are also available in realtime, through the campaign manager. Just sign up in this platform, then you will receive interesting gifts if you have a very creative campaign, or your campaign is liked the most by other participants.

Participants

You are going to collect different types of data, specified in the campaigns. Of course you efforts count, as some campaigns will give you tangible rewards. You can also have fun and compete with other participants by the points earned in each campaign. Your contribution of data will help in many ways: the campus and city infrastructure can be improved, valuable information are shared among people, or simply help others (and yourself) to save money by sharing good commercial promotions. Start collecting data now by getting our Citizense app on Google Play store

Create a campaign

The campaign is a combination of different sensing tasks, each task is of different types (text input, numeric input, data & time input, audio sensor, WiFi sensor and camera), with dynamic links (unconditional and conditional) between the tasks. With this combination, canpaign authors can create a very flexible campaign on your prefered topic. Furthermore, you can intuitively specify other parameters of a campaign. For example, the author can set a limit in terms of space and time for his/her campaign.

Collect Data

With the Android app, participants can download the campaigns, execute the campaigns and immediately check their account to see the increased points and incentive earned by the campaign. Just follow the instructions on the screen. Don't worry if the network connection drops unexpectedly, the app will keep the collected data internally and submit later; your effort will never be lost. You can also view the results of public campaigns right on your device, to see how others are doing, in real time.

Visualize/Analyze Data

As campaign authors, you can see the visualized and aggregated data in real time. If you share the results of certain campaigns with the public, they can also see the results in real time, therefore data is shared and further discussed. This platform also provides data to other systems that can further analyzed the participants' collected data.
