The Citizen Science Project Builder is a web-based tool that allows researchers, students, and all members of the public to create and run data-analysis Citizen Science (CS) projects.

The CS Project Builder facilitates the implementation of such projects by providing an interface that requires limited technical knowledge, and ideally little or no coding skills. It supports the creation of projects where contributors can perform complex data classification tasks such as analyze or enrich existing data, typically large sets of images or texts (ie. satellite pictures, social media posts, etc.), as well as other media formats such as videos, audios, and scanned documents. Very soon a data collection (smartphone-based) tool will be integrated with the builder.

The web interface for the CS Project Builder is inspired by the now discontinued Crowdcrafting platform. Its implementation is based on the open-source crowdsourcing framework PyBossa. The code is publicly available under the ‘CitizenScienceCenter’ organisation on Github.
