List of Citizen Science applications / web sites / mobile phone applications

Hello. I am trying to compile a list of web sites and mobile phone applications wherein people are using technology to enable citizen science. If you know of a project I do not have listed, can you add it via the comments, and I will add it to the list? Thanks!

Notes eBird and Cornell seem most successful, check out these quick facts: More than 60 scientific papers have used Cornell Lab citizen-science data since 1997
97,331 checklists reported from the four-day Great Backyard Bird Count in 2010
More than 96,000 nesting attempts reported to the Cornell Lab since 1997
1,000,000 bird observations reported to eBird on average each month
More than 80,000,000 bird observations in the Avian Knowledge Network
