Who are you?

Anecdata is a project of the Community Environmental Health Lab at the MDI Biological Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine. You can contact us by email at dbailey at mdibl dot org.

We started building Anecdata because existing citizen science sites didn’t have the versatility we needed for a lot of our projects, and we realized that many other organizations must be encountering the same problem.

Can you add (feature X)?

We always welcome feature suggestions! If you’d like a more bespoke approach, we would be happy to consult with you about integrating maps, graphs, galleries, or other data from Anecdata onto your website.

I found a bug. Can you fix it?

Sure! Drop a mesage in the support section and we’ll give it our best!
