What is Community Remote Sensing?

Remote sensing is the sensing or collection of information 'from a distance'.
Community remote sensing is a new field that combines remote sensing with
citizen science, social networks, and crowd-sourcing to enhance the data
obtained from traditional sources. It includes the collection,
calibration, analysis,
communication, or application of remotely sensed information by these
community means.

there is a great list of citizen science projects relevant to
community remote sensing
