Program Earth: Environmental Sensing Technology and the Making of a Computational Planet

Jennifer Gabrys

Abstract

Sensors are increasingly present in our environments and technologies. At the same time, environmental sensing is a set of practices meant to provide more information on environmental change, while enabling new forms of environmental citizenship. Program Earth documents and discusses the ways in which new environments and citizen-sensing practices are emerging along with environmental sensing technologies. Through discussing specific instances where sensors are deployed for environmental study and citizen engagement across three areas of environmental sensing, from wild sensing to pollution se ...
