swe4citizenscience is an open citizen observatories repository on GitHub, to be used to develop best practices on how to use OGC specifications for citizen observatories.

For further information, please go to the wiki. If you want to know why to do this, you best start with the rationale page. The use cases are described on the use cases page. If you already know all this, you may want to start with the details around the observation model.
