Run this app named GLOBE Observer or download it using ApkOnline. You can do it using our Android online emulator.

GLOBE Observer invites you to make observations of the Earth around you. Observations you collect and submit with this app are designed to help scientists better understand satellite data collected by NASA from space.

The current version includes four capabilities. GLOBE Clouds allows observers to make regular observations of the Earths cloud cover and compare them to NASA satellite observations. With GLOBE Mosquito Habitat Mapper, users locate mosquito habitats, observe and identify mosquito larvae, and reduce the potential threat of mosquito borne disease. GLOBE Land Cover is designed to allow users to document what is on the land (trees, grass, buildings, etc.). GLOBE Trees asks users to estimate a trees height by taking pictures of trees with their device and answering a few questions. Additional capabilities may be added.

By using the GLOBE Observer app, you are joining the GLOBE community and contributing important scientific data to NASA and GLOBE, your local community, and students and scientists worldwide. The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Program is an international science and education program that provides students and the public worldwide with the opportunity to participate in data collection and the scientific process, and contribute meaningfully to our understanding of the Earth system and global environment.

`Needs LOTS more UI work. App installed with the name "Observer

so itwashard to find. Better would have been Globe Observer or NASA Globe Observer . Requirement to make multiple observations for each data point, rather than a 360 photo scan make it much less user friendly. Default pw is weak, too short-6 char, and hard to remember letter number mix. BAD UI. Four word or even 3 word diceware type pw would be stronger and easier to remember. And why does this need security? See xkcd Log in to account on computer has no way to change pw except 'forgot pw' routine. **** App stalls on sending photos-Bug fixed. Since I'm only using it for cloud observations, would be nice to be able to default to entering a new obs, instead of being offered trees and mosquitoes. NEXT on opening screen disappears and is replaced by "Go to Website" as I touch NEXT, gives me irrelevant website instead of APP.`, `Tried to make an account and after the account creation process failed and froze, my pw became "invalid." My email was also listed as "already in use." After attempting a pw reset, I was immediately barred from the account until an arbitrarily decided upon time. I will never use this app again. If I could give zero stars, I would. I've no words to describe my level of frustration. It seems you've indeed earned your dismal overall rating.`,

I've pretty much given up on this app. It's been down for weeks as far as satellite overpass capability and the only answers I've gotten are that everything should be back to normal within a couple of days. No acknowledgement from NASA on Facebook and Twitter or on the Observer home page. I have uninstalled.

I really want to participate, and it looks like fun to measure the height of trees, but every time I try it pops up with an error saying "Invalid angles Please step away from the tree to better measure the top and bottom". I am just trying to align the base! I have been standing 50 ft away, and it still says that.

I really liked this app before and loved contributing but my app isn't working properly. The compass is not showing up when I wish to take a picture. *Edit* For a brief time I had the compass show up but currently it's back to the same problem."
