23 Research Data Things – 19. Data APIs and Apps


I was impressed with Trove Application Gallery. I think it’s neat that Trove put their API out there for free, there are some pretty cool projects that people have made. It makes data more ‘fun’ and usable for different audiences.


I really enjoyed reading the 8 apps that turn citizens into scientists article. I think the idea of the citizen scientist is great, and it’s a great way to leverage the pervasive technology of smart phones to collect a large amount of data. But omg, number 5… people-watchers and drama-seekers should get a kick out of that one, and can rest assured they’ll be contributing to scientific research in the process! 👀
