November 2011 “Crowdsourcing Industry Landscape” Infographic
Crowd Creativity, Crowdfunding, Distributed Knowledge

Crowdsourcing.org is pleased to present our November 2011 “Crowdsourcing Industry Landscape” infographic, which reflects our revised industry taxonomy and is aligned with Crowdsourcing.org's category structure. The infographic is available below (an ultra high-resolution version will be available for download from the site after CrowdConf2011).

In addition to updated site listings, this new version contains a number of important changes that reflect the current views of our research and editorial teams and input from our viewers. The previous taxonomy identified seven applications of crowdsourcing as well as a ‘Tools’ category — eight in total. After a period of considerable review, we’ve settled on six main categories of crowdsourcing.

"The whole purpose of creating the much needed crowdsourcing taxonomy is to provide a framework for the industry and to structure the discussion going forward,” says Carl Esposti, founder of Crowdsourcing.org. “As with all taxonomies, it must evolve as it is reviewed and refined."

"Crowdsourcing isn’t a static phenomenon," Esposti continues. "This is the third generation of our taxonomy, which we first launched at CrowdConf2010."
