LEO Network

How does the LEO Network work?

With LEO Network you can share an observation or other knowledge about an event that is time- and location-specific. This "observation" could be a first sighting or occurrence, or it may contribute to a body of similar or related observations. Either way, it begins with a person applying their knowledge to identify something that is unusual or significant and then using LEO Network tools to share that information in an easy-to-use and effective way. Here is a summary of the basic steps:

Submitting an Observation - The Observer submits an observation of an event. This can be done using the LEO iPhone or Android mobile app or on the LEO Network website. The observation includes the time, date and location of the event, a brief description of it and may include related images. The observation is then transmitted to the Network database.

Publishing an Observation - An "Editor" may support or facilitate the editing process by corresponding with the Observer and connecting them to other members. The Editors can also help pair Observers with a topic or local area expert or connect related observations. Approved observations are published and appear on the LEO Network's searchable database, maps, and also on the member's profile.
