Abstract

This note focuses on the motivation, approach, and the initial prototype implementation of Geotagger: a collaborative participatory environmental inquiry system. We situate the need for such a technology, and discuss related work - much of which is situated in the realm of citizen science. Our work uniquely distinguishes itself from many other citizen science applications in that it supports limited data collection and analysis, with the additional benefit of supporting social interactions and engagement through conversations about observed data. This is accomplished by creating friends and groups which are collaborators in the observational inquiry process.
