Abstract

Participatory Sensing is a process whereby individuals and communities use mobile phones and web services to observe, analyze, and present personal and environmental artifacts, events and experiences. In this technical report we describe a community data campaign that made use of smartphone based participatory sensing for environmental needs assessment. Community organizers defined the content of the participatory sensing campaign. 68 individuals participated over the course of 6 weeks, uploading over 450 mini-surveys, including over 700 images.
