Ooze is a crowdsourcing geographic information system (GIS) platform that enables organizations to post tasks (e.g. digitize trails visible in satellite imagery) and provides workers to complete them. Workers are trained thoroughly to produce accurate results. Ooze automatically divides large jobs into small subtasks and compiles the results for the customer; it also uses several automated quality assurance (QA) algorithms to verify the accuracy of job results. Ooze exports feature results KML format.
Who can use it?
Ooze is open to the public for both job submission and worker registration. Potential job-processing customers would be companies who do GIS processing, urban planners or others in the fields of geographic/geospatial science, mapping or navigation. Potential workers for Ooze could range from any average person with free time and a desire to make some additional income to highly-trained geospatial analysts.
Where can I get it?
Ooze is available in two versions; a public website and as a private installation.
Public: Primordial administers a central public Ooze website where companies can submit jobs for processing. Additionally, on this site workers can register and be paid for processing map data.
Private: To facilitate the processing of private or confidential data, Primordial offers Ooze as a private installation for local networks.
