Standardization of citizen science methodologies for odor nuisance notifications

  The initiative is born from the need to create bridges of open, continuous and standardised communication between citizens, administration, companies and universities. This communication will be based on citizen data that will help to better diagnose and observe the activities that are potential odour emitters. The aim of this initiative is to standardise and establish a methodology to identify and diagnose the problem of odour impact through citizen science.

   This standard is addressed to citizens, Activities Potentially Generating Odour Impact (APGOIs), administrations, universities, odour experts or other organisations involved in odour management, Universities, odour experts or other organisations involved in odour nuisance management such as NGOs or civil associations.

This standard provides, in a standardised and collaborative way, guidelines for the registration, investigation and investigation and evaluation of the causes, as well as the study of possible actions to minimise odour nuisance. actions to minimise odour nuisance.

   The standard covers the identification of the actors and the problem, the creation of an action group, the definition of an action group, the definition of the communication strategy and protocols for data collection and analysis, as well as the data collection and analysis, as well as the creation of an action group.

   The scope of application of this Spanish standard includes:

  • The development of a methodology for the processing and analysis of all data generated through citizen science. The development of a methodology for the processing and analysis of all data generated through citizen science.
