Project Description

This proposal funds creation of a citizen science interface to verify that seams are clean and correct. The team at PSI, led by Pamela Gay, will: configure existing interfaces and tutorial tools to map to the combinations of issues being examined; provide needed interface updates as technologies evolve; and maintain the servers hosting the citizen science program. In order to assure these programs are well integrated, Gay will attend a face to face meeting in year one. CosmoQuest is an existing project with the tools needed already coded. This grant is leveraging this infrastructure, and only requires minimal customizations to integrate the pipeline with CosmoQuest citizen science portals.

Dr. Pamela L Gay is the Director of the CosmoQuest project. She will attend all virtual and face to face meetings as needed, aid in program implementation, and assure all timelines are met and dissemination needs are addressed.

Programming Staff: We have allocated a mid level programmer to this project. This individual will implement needed software under the management of Gay and will be responsible for day to day maintenance and updates to the site and servers.
