Iranian Nuclear Sites and other Crowdsourcing GIS News

Open Nuclear Iran is a crowdsourced effort developed anonymously by concerned Iranians and experts from the arms control community to document, assess, and share information on Iran's nuclear program in an open forum.

It's a CrowdMap implementation.

Pulse, a UK publication "for health professionals only" (so it says at the top of the page) is building a senitment map.

We plan to build an interactive map detailing what GPs feel about their local hospital services. But we need your help - fill in this quick, 20-question survey, and you will be entered into a prize draw for an iPad 2 worth £399.

The Geo-Wiki Project is a global network of volunteers who wish to help improve the quality of global land cover maps. Since large differences occur between existing global land cover maps, current ecosystem and land-use science lacks crucial accurate data (e.g. to determine the potential of additional agricultural land available to grow crops in Africa). Volunteers are asked to review hotspot maps of global land cover disagreement and determine, based on what they actually see in Google Earth and their local knowledge, if the land cover maps are correct or incorrect. Their input is recorded in a database, along with uploaded photos, to be used in the future for the creation of a new and improved global land cover map.
