Citizen-based forecasting

Hi all,

We have a platform that produces real-time species distribution forecasts based on citizen reports. Right now, we're forecasting a few things--some ticks, jellyfish, moose-car interactions--on a daily basis. I'm continuing to build this out as opportunities come along. We have a toxic algae forecast we're releasing this summer. Have done whales in the past. Just generally looking for collaborations. If anyone is interested in working together on a taxon, let me know. Here's the site:

eco.bigelow.org

And here's a paper that describes some of the methods (at least for jellyfish):
