10/30/2020GLOBE Website Upgrade
The website’s upgrade transition period is planned for 12 November through 16 November. During this period, sign in to the site will be turned off, and as such, users will not be able to add data. For the GLOBE Observer app, users will not be able to submit data within the app. However, users will still be able to make and store observations on the app to be uploaded to the site at a later time (after the upgrade is complete). >>
06/28/2019Did You Dump Out the Water? When to Answer “No” to Eliminating a Mosquito Breeding Site When Using the GO Mosquito Habitat Mapper.
Our team has received several questions about what to do when mosquitoes are found in a natural habitat, such as an estuary or a wetland. When you use the Mosquito Habitat Mapper and your mosquito observations are finally logged, you are then prompted to do Step 4, “Eliminating Mosquito Breeding Habitat. By dumping or treating water you can significantly decrease the spread of mosquitoes.” >>
06/25/2019Source Reduction Means Mosquito Reduction
With the beginning of the mosquito season comes the need for protecting individuals and communities from mosquitoes. When you use the GLOBE Observer Mosquito Habitat Mapper tool, you are not only providing useful surveillance information about when and where mosquitoes are found: you also are providing an important public service known as “source reduction.” >>
06/17/2019GO on a Trail with the Mosquito Habitat Mapper!
ou may have heard the news- there is an exciting challenge this summer for GLOBE Observer users! The challenge follows in the spirit of early cartographers, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, and you can win one of two ways. First, use GLOBE Observer to map as much land cover as possible in any GLOBE country by September 2. The top data collectors in each GLOBE region will be recognized. Or, for U.S. users, head to the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail between Pittsburgh, PA and the Oregon Coast, and take Land Cover and Mosquito Habitat Mapper observations using the GLOBE Observer app. This 3 month campaign kicks off on National Trails Day (June1) and concludes on Labor Day (Sept 2). Each observation you make along the trail will increase your chances to be one of our top observers and be eligible for a prize package.

09/02/2018NASA GLOBE Observer’s Weekly Roundup: September 2-8 2018
Happy Anniversary to Us! It's been two years and in this week's roundup we are walking down memory lane. 1. ANNIVERSARY: Our team has grown and changed somewhat over the last two years. As has the app: We first started with one tool: Clouds (back in the fall of 2016). Then added the option of sky color and more to Clouds in March 2017. Then came Mosquito Habitat Mapper in the spring of 2017. Recently, The GLOBE Program and the GLOBE Observer app have joined with the Department of State to help in the fight against zika with the GLOBE Zika Education and Prevention Project. This project is on going, but already has trained many in mosquito-disease-prone countries. >>
