Eyewitness Community Survey
What is Eyewitness Community Survey?
Eyewitness Community Survey is a citizen science tool that helps communities get healthier by collecting information from their local environment. We Engage 4 Health invites children from grade 5 and up and adults of all ages to participate. ECS observers walk the community, make observations, and answer survey questions on a smart phone or tablet to capture the data.
Important Features of ECS

- To allow data to be pooled, each ECS observer needs to follow the same process (protocol).
- A community can customize some parts of the ECS question set to focus on issues of greatest concern.
