    Participation of non-specialists in scientific research is a crucial component of citizen science. Within the confines of the project's structures, the citizen participates as an observer or experimenter. The development of enabling technology, which is typified by the spatially-enabled "smart" phone with mapping applications and its accompanying networks, including the GPS system, is to blame for the current growth in initiatives. Two goals of citizen science initiatives are to increase the impact of scientific research and to increase public acceptance of and understanding of science.
