No Need for Binoculars: Visualization of Avian Citizen Science Data Using JMP® 10

 No Need for Binoculars: Visualization of Avian Citizen Science Data Using JMP® 10

 

Rosemary Lucas, Development Tester, JMP Division, SAS

Citizen science projects, where both scientists and the public can participate in scientific research, are gaining in popularity. These projects contribute to the collection of data in a diversity of fields, sometimes resulting in huge databases of information publicly available for downloading. One of these projects is eBird1 , an online checklist program where amateur and expert birders submit observations on types of birds and their numbers, and information on when and where the birds were seen. With over 40 million records, this checklist database is a rich resource for exploration. JMP® 10 is an excellent tool for its exploration, providing easy methods for data acquisition, preparation, and display of temporal and spatial distributions of over 800 bird species.
