Citizen Science data is filling some gaps when conventional data cannot. To make citizen Science data FAIR and compatible with official sources the same standards should be applied. But Citizen Science data has its own requirements such as recognizing individual contributions, ensuring personal data privacy, and maintaining data quality. In this session we will present some Citizen Science projects adopting OGC standards, will present how Sensor Things API can be extended in the h2020 Cos4Cloud project to include this type of data requirements and will demonstrate some practical implementations of it.
