Mise en œuvre d’une plateforme cartographique participative pour le suivi des basses eaux dans les Cévennes (France)

Abstract : Mobilizing citizens for supporting research is a very widespread action in the field of natural sciences and particularly for obtaining data on the location and counting of plant and/or animal species. This practice is much less common for water resource observation.As part of this study, an online Webmapping platform wasdeveloped to collect data (photos, videos, comments, height values...) from citizens on low flow during the summer period in the Cévennes basin of the Gardon (Département du Gard, France). Volunteers were identified according to 3 profiles to supply the platform; (1) the "reader"profile (limnimetric scale reading), (2) the "expert"profile (with whom a precise protocol has been defined) and (3) a more generic profile ("observer") which during his visit to the studied area will bring up a wide range of observations.This approach and the associated platform were tested during the summer of 2018. Technically, the system works and the approach has proven its relevance. The first results are therefore promising even if it will be necessary to be sustainable in order to continue this approach effectively
