Project Description

Welcome to Planet Four, a citizen science project designed to help planetary scientists identify and measure features on the surface of Mars. This survey aims to determine the number of craters on the Martian surface at different scales and resolutions. By counting the craters we will be able to figure out how old various geological surfaces are!

The following scores were calculated using a statistically-driven machine-learning approach, a type of AI that learns to perform a task by analysing patterns in data. This is an experimental approach to citizen-science impact assessment, and the exact reasoning behind the scores is not explainable. The scores represent a best guess of the impact the project is having in each domain. Scores are recalculated and updated when “View impact report” is clicked.
