Virtual Reef Diver, finalist 2019 DIIS Eureka Prize for Innovation in Citizen Science


Virtual Reef Diver taps into
the power of citizen science for the Great Barrier Reef. This fun, online platform provides
a unique opportunity for citizen scientists
to help monitor the reef by classifying underwater images
from their living room or submitting dive photos
from their own adventures. Using ground-breaking
statistical analysis, we combine this crowd-sourced
information with existing monitoring efforts to map the reef’s health and help look after
this Australian treasure.
