As the COBWEB Project develops we will be sharing some of our development work and demonstrators here on the website. This page will gather together current development work grouped by broad project theme.
- Welcome page for the test federation - this demonstrator represents AIP-6 work led by the COBWEB team. For more on these developments take a look at our recent presentations and this GEO-X poster.
- Read the GEOSS AIP-6 Engineering Reports, which discuss the AIP-6 work COBWEB has been part of.
- Mobile App Demonstrator Video - this demonstrator shows the types of processes and interfaces a citizen engaging with the COBWEB mobile and web apps might encounter. This video was created for GEO-X, Geneva, January 2014.
- Validating Land Cover using COBWEB - this COBWEB video demonstrates and discusses how our infrastructure can be used to collect valuable environmental data relating to land cover, which can subsequently be used to validate Earth Observation derived land cover products.
- Coed Ty Gwyn Community Woodland Management Plan (CWMP) - as part of our co-design activities COBWEB and Dyfi Woodlands have been working on this innovative survey at Coed Tŷ Gwyn. View the CWMP on the Dyfi Biosphere website, and contact the project team or Coetiroedd Dyfi Woodlands for more details also view their volunteering oportunities for the summer.
- Ysgol Bro Ddyfi - as part of our education, stakeholder engagement and co-design activities we have been working with Ysgol Bro Ddyfi - a bilingual school based within the Dyfi Biosphere. On 7th July 2014 we worked with the school and staff from the RSPB Ynys Reserve on a day-long Invertebrates Field Trip for Year 7 (age 11 and 12) pupils. You can download, and are welcome to reuse, the bilingual (English and Welsh) Invertebrate workbook and Invertebrate record collection form which were used alongside the COBWEB App prototype for this event.

Co-design and Field-testing with COBWEB
The COBWEB project invites your proposals for projects under our co-design fund. Proposals should build on existing work, and involve the collection of environmental data by citizens – be they volunteers, organisation members, clients, students, or the general public. We are looking for plans that will use COBWEB's demonstrator mobile phone applications to collect these data, and the Dyfi Biosphere website to display the data. No scientific or technical expertise is required, and technical support will be provided free of charge to successful applicants as part of the project.
Ideas might include volunteering schemes, a programme of educational activities, activities targeted at visitors, or proposals related to specific sites. COBWEB wishes to fund a range of projects that, between them, will reach the whole Dyfi Biosphere area, and cover our three pilot case study areas of flooding, biological monitoring and earth observation.
