Survey

The PRISM project (Preservation by Record of Ireland’s Shell Middens) is a citizen science participatory mapping scheme initiated by researchers from University College Dublin and University College Cork. The project is developing digital mapping tools which will help volunteer citizen scientists to record observations about the impacts of climate change and human activities on coastal shell middens in their community.

We need your help to find out more about the impacts of climate change and human activities on coastal shell middens in your community. Please take part in our participatory mapping project and record your observations.

This user survey will take 10 – 15 minutes and uses an interactive map to record one of three categories of observation:

  1. Possible new site
  2. Recorded site
  3. Local environment near a recorded site

Participants can fill out the optional user feedback form linked to below to collect supplementary information which may be useful for developing future projects.

Responses are stored separately from the coastal shell midden citizen science participatory data set.
