The projects testing the COBWEB software have been evaluating their experience using the app as well as making suggestions for improvement. This ranged from how their surveys functioned and what would work better, or about the design and usability of the app. The suggestions were then implemented and the software refined.
This co-design process enabled COBWEB to meet the needs of land and sea citizen science projects in a Biosphere Reserve. It has created a large pool of data able to feed into policy and management plans and created teams of citizens enthusiastic to continue their work.
