Event/Activity Description is an open and transparent citizen science data management platform that advances the utility, impacts, and outcomes of field-based citizen science programs globally. This platform now supports more than 600 projects ranging from those that monitor water quality to wildlife to biodiversity. is unique among field-based platforms in that it is fully customizable and it allows projects to ‘create their own citizen science projects’ in a do-it-yourself (DIY) approach. Projects can define what they wish to measure, document how they measure it, and build customized datasheets for real-time data entry online and via mobile applications. This saves hundreds of projects the costs and hassles associated with creating their own web frontend and backend systems as well as their own custom mobile apps.
