CosmoQuest Image Detective

Main Project Information
Presented By CosmoQuest
Goal Create a searchable catalog of images taken from the ISS.
Task Identify features seen in images taken from the ISS.
Where Online only

Each of the millions of images that has been taken by astronauts needs information and labels to be added. This can only be done by a human. Using Image Detective, you can identify what geo-science and other features are in the images, and where on Earth the photo is centered. By adding labels to images, scientists and the public will be able to effectively search through an upcoming online catalog of these images.
