Treebook

1 What is the Treebook project about?

This is an open science project to map trees. Here we create a profile page for each of the trees that form part of our lives. We keep tracking their life by locating them, their pictures at various times of their life, when do they flower, fruit etc. We can also chronicle about who visits them, such as a monkey, a bird, butterflies, moths, worms, pests, but keeping the tree as a focus. Trees are part of our habitat, but they are also habitat for a lot of others.

2 How do we plan to do it?

To facilitate the mapping process, we bring to you a mobile App (for Android based phones for the time being). Please download the App called Treebook.in, install it, create an account and start mapping. The mobile App will map the trees by locating them with latitude and longitude.

Spread the word! As a citizen science project any one can do this. Yes, others can also update the tree you have mapped. It is a collaborative project. We record every contribution: who did what and when. We honor frequent contributors with special prizes!

India has about 1.3 million schools. We are sure every school has at least one landmark tree nearby. Same is the case about our homes. Don't we have trees around our homes, offices, parks, streets ?

3 Why map trees?

So that we can follow them, the way we follow friends in a social networking platform. It is like Facebook for trees! And the reason why we call it a Treebook.

If trees have an address, we can have an address too! You can tell people where to meet by informing "let us meet at tree number 51". No need to tell them the building number, street number, locality, town or for that matter which country. After all they live longer than most of our buildings. This is one of the selfish reasons to map trees.

There are plenty of other reasons: making us keen observers of our habitat by mapping seasonal changes of the trees, protecting our habitat, calculating green cover, mapping biodiversity, recognizing and naming them

3.1 Seriously:

to sensitize citizens about our environment: environment education to enhance the participatory base of science: science for all and by all to include and involve everyone in doing science: inculcating the spirit of collaboration to inculcate a culture of recording, reporting and conducting research: culture of doing science to develop critical scientific literacy among the citizens: seeking evidence

4 Who owns the data collected?

It is an open data, open science project. A scientific investigation where there are no restrictions on who participates; no single agency owns the results of the investigation; and the process of investigation is open.

Open science projects are Citizen Science projects, though not all citizen science projects are open.
