Based on volunteers
CrowdCrafting is powered by the PyBossa software, a free, 100% open-source framework for crowdsourcing.
It enables you to create and run projects where volunteers help you with image classification, transcription, geocoding and more. PyBossa lets researchers, civic hackers and developers connect with people all around the world to solve problems faster and more efficiently. Embrace the power of the crowd!
You can read more about the architecture in the PyBossa Documentation and follow the step-by-step tutorial to create your own projects.

“During a crisis data produced can be overwhelming to analyse. Microtasking could help solve it by harnessing the power of the crowd.”
“In just 29 days, they made 90,000 tasks — each by 10 different volunteers to reduce errors — and identified 1,420 well locations.”
