The Remote Sensing Research Centre is a strong supporter of capacity building and Citizen Science. Within the coastal and marine realm various projects are conducted where the centre provides input and support to citizen scientist based monitoring and mapping of coral and seagrass environments. These projects provide the citizen scientist with new tools to work with. Workshops in coastal and marine remote sensing have been provided to various government and non government agencies in the Asia Pacific.
