Fossil Finder – the next stage. April 2018 Update

Following the great success of the early stages of the Fossil Finder online project, we are asking for further help from the existing and new citizen scientists. We need your assistance to help us to evaluate the quality and precision of the initial data classifications.

Through the new classification workflow on the Fossil Finder website, we are asking citizen scientists to assess the images identified as most likely to contain artefacts of interest. The initial evaluation of the data has highlighted hotspots of consensus amongst the citizen scientists’ classification data. We are asking volunteers to evaluate if these clusters have correctly identified and labelled objects of interest to the Fossil Finder project – primarily objects that might be fossilised bone or teeth.

We hope you are willing to get involved with this effort and help us fulfil this next stage of the project.
