You can help make a difference as a citizen scientist by snapping and uploading a Coastie photograph. Your photograph will contribute to a time series analysis at your Coastie location.
Rising sea levels, change in storm frequency and magnitude, and declining ice coverage are threats to the resiliency of our coastlines over the coming decades. Continual photographic monitoring allows coastal managers and researchers to create a time lapse series of erosion and recovery processes, furthering our understanding on the coastal dynamics at each Coastie location.
The Coastie dataset is easy to contribute to. Simply place your cell phone on a Coastie stand at participating Parks Canada locations, take a photograph with your camera lined up on the stand, and upload on the spot with the QR code or by opening the website once you have WiFi access.
