@Mel_Nod could you please correct this writing?
“In a 2015 effort, DigitalGlobe, whose Earth-observing satellites provide much of the data for Google Earth, recruited users to zoom in on images of Ghana’s Lake Volta, where experts suspect children are forced to work in fishing. “We were looking across this massive lake to try to detect boats,” says Rhiannan Price, director of DigitalGlobe’s global development program in Westminster, Colorado. In total, 90,000 users pinned 80,000 boats, buildings, and fish cages.”
“recruited users” — No, that was Nodders! It was done on the Tomnod platform. We did the fish-cage-net campaign, and the kiln-slavery campaign!
But no where in the article are Nodders and Tomnod cited, by name.
Tomnod NEEDS this kind of publicity!! We NODDERS need this kind of recognition!! @Mel_Nod

We will all recognize images like this one.
Our work fed the machine algorithms (again) .
And we aren’t given credit for what we do. A little boasting about Nodders, a little publicity, would at least make a thank-you for us.
I have never seen any company that hides a huge resource, like us Nodders!
P.S. To all Nodders, you’all do FANTASTIC work!
