Following our successful Kick-off meeting, the first LandSense User Requirements workshop was held along with the European Citizen Science Association (ECSA) General Assembly in January 2017 at IIASA in Laxenburg, Austria. The combined event brought together LandSense project partners and key stakeholders to discuss the user requirements for LandSense, as well as to co-design engagement strategies for new citizen powered initiatives. It also provided an ideal platform to meet a community of motivated partners across Europe driving citizen science.
Day #1 of the workshop was an interactive session that allowed LandSense partners and interested stakeholders to explore the tools and services already existing within the LandSense consortium. Discussions allowed for feedback and the exploration of possibilities that these services and tools will offer within the course of the project.
Day #2 was dedicated to the three LandSense demonstration cases. Group discussions allowed participants to gain detailed knowledge about the LandSense demo cases, and to elaborate on how LandSense-related technologies can provide the required services and how these technologies can be adapted to specific user needs.
Overall, many people from various organisations took part in the LandSense user requirements workshop, the results of which are compiled in a User Requirements document accessible here.
