Jungle Weather CitSci first batch finished

crowdsourcing speed record

Only a good month after the launch of the Junge Weather project the first ~380 000 transcriptions have been made. This unusual speed record was in part due to the fact that so many were at home due to COVID lockdowns. Regardless this is an amazing accomplishment.

For now I’ll go back to the drawing board to see if these transcriptions can be leveraged to further automate the task using machine learning. New batches of data will be uploaded onces we can scope the efficiency of this problem better.

My thanks go out to all the ~2300 volunteers who have contributed to the project!!
