How can we use big data from iNaturalist to address important questions in Entomology?

February 26, 2024
by Leah Lee. Large-scale geographic data over time on insect diversity can be used to answer important questions in Entomology. Open-source, open-access citizen science platforms like iNaturalist generate huge amounts of data on species diversity and distribution at accelerating rates. However, unstructured citizen science data contain inherent biases and need to be used with care. One of the efforts to validate big data from iNaturalist is to cross-check with systematically collected data, such as museum specimens.

Searching for Other Solar Systems

November 21, 2023
by Emma Turtelboom. Over the last three decades, we have discovered over 5000 exoplanets, which are planets outside of our Solar System. With these observations, we can try to answer many questions we have about the universe. For example, how unique is the Solar System? How do planets form? Is there life elsewhere in the Milky Way? We can query the NASA Exoplanet Archive to compare multi-planet systems to the Solar System. Through this, we can compare how similar (or dissimilar!) the systems are.
