The workshop aimed at bringing scholars from crowdsourcing and GIScience communities in order to figure out the potentials of crowds in environmental monitoring efforts and GIScience studies. In total, 48 participants from different universities [...]
We know many examples when VGI data (e.g., OpenStreetMap, Wikimapia, etc.) help to cope with effects of various humanitarian disasters all over the world. The reason of using open crowd-sourced data is clear. The geographic data are available for free. If, for some reason, data are missing for a specific region, it is not a [...]
