For July 2014, we had 4732 classifications of 237 storms from 250 citizen scientists.

  1. KC Bennett says :

    I am wondering if there’s a bug. When I choose the image that looks like the stronger storm, if I choose the right side image, the next frame brings up that right-side image for classification. But if I choose the left side image as stronger, the next frame brings up the right side image instead. I’d live to continue classifying, but it think you’re getting erroneous data.

    Is this a bug? Am I doing something wrong? Or is this really what you intended?

    • cch001 says :

      No, you are fine. The image on the right will always be the image that you will classify, regardless if it is stronger or weaker than the one on the left. -Chris

  2. thomas worthen says :

    why when some storms are only 20% analyzed do I get the message: this storm is out of subjects?

    • cch001 says :

      Thomas, this means that you have classified every image of the storm. You are not allowed to classify more than once per image, so you should choose another storm. We need other classifiers to finish the remaining 80% of the storm. Thanks for contributing! -Chris
