This deliverable provides a report to accompany the tools for environmental opinion mining delivered. Our web service provides tools to perform recognition of climate-related sentiment and opinions, including the distinction between the holder of the opinion (e.g. a particular scientist) and the opinion target (what the opinion is about, e.g. fracking). The deliverable describes the second version of the tools, building on the initial version described in D2.3.1.

This deliverable provides a report to accompany the tools for environmental information extraction delivered. The tools are enabled as web services which perform entity disambiguation, recognition of environmental terms in English and German. Open source versions of the tools and demos are available.
The Climate Challenge, a social media application available at www.ecoresearch.net/climate-challenge, aims to provide an engaging way to help people learn more about Earth’s climate, test their climate knowledge against others’, and promote the adoption of sustainable lifestyle choices. Measuring the distribution of opinions among citizens in a monthly prediction task, for example, will shed light on collective awareness processes and represents a first step in harnessing and focusing the wisdom of the crowd in ways that benefit society – such as when making tough choices in the face of a high degree of uncertainty.
To ensure compatibility with a wide range of platforms, T3.1 has chosen a generic HTML5 approach to address desktop and mobile users alike. The game uses a flexible authentication framework that supports a direct user registration or logins via existing Facebook, Twitter or Google accounts.

The Collective Awareness Platform of DecarboNet aims to empower citizens, help translate awareness into behavioural change, and provide analytical and visual methods to understand the processes that underlie this behavioural change. This document summarizes the output of WP3 including the Tasks 3.2: Co-Creation and Visualisation of Knowledge and 3.3: System Integration.
The visual analytics and knowledge co-creation environment of WP3 allows users to track and discuss emerging trends in the public dialog, and to better understand the social perceptions of environmental topics. It builds on the Media Watch on Climate Change (MWCC), a Web portal publicly accessible at www.ecoresearch.net/climate that aggregates environmental communication to investigate common patterns in the public climate and energy debate. The portal’s analytical portfolio not only provides customized information services for citizens, but also important insights for policy makers, NGOs and other environmental stakeholders.
