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.
