Sensored Hive – Translating Bees Workshop, at Camp Pixelache Helsinki, June 2014new album
As part of the Citizen Science project Socientize, Melliferopolis hosted a hands-on workshop where a Langstroth beehive was equipped with sensors to monitor the condition of the hive. The hive is located in Kaisaniemi Botanic Garden, near the meteorological station and data coming from the hive are transmitted to the open access database.

The bees were kindly donated by Artova ry association, who installed bees in Kuusiluoto and had a swarm on June 8th 2014.
2 other locations with hives (Barcelona, Bordeaux) are equipped with the same technology and are linked to the same database (openbeeresearch.org/ and www.openbeehive.eu/app/data-visualization/).
To visualize and translate this data in a creative way is encouraged. Please contact info@melliferopolis.net
