We will briefly introduce the Cos4Cloud project and present two of the services developed: MOBIS and FASTCAT-Cloud


What are these two services about?

MOBIS is a service to create integrative citizen science apps where you can report all your environmental and biodiversity observations in one Android or iOS app. In contrast, FASTCAT-Cloud is a website for you to upload and analyse all your nature videos and pictures and receive only information on relevant images and recordings of wildlife activity. Also, you will be able to quickly identify the species’ names with Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Cos4Cloud has developed 13 services to address the technological challenges shared by citizen observatories and help them boost the quantity and the quality of observations. Cos4Cloud will make these services available in the new European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), so that you can choose the one(s) you are interested in!
