We develop and evaluate a new ubiquitous crowdsourcing platform called CrowdPickUp, that combines the advantages of mobile and situated crowdsourcing to overcome their respective limitations. In a 19-day long field study with 70 participants, we evaluate the quality of work that CrowdPickUp produces. In particular, we measure quality in terms of worker performance in a variety of tasks (requiring local knowledge, location-based, general) while using a number of different quality control mechanisms, and also capture workers’ perceptions of the platform. Our findings show that workers of CrowdPickUp contributed data of comparable quality to previously presented crowdsourcing deployments while at the same time allowing for a wide breadth of tasks to be deployed. Finally, we offer insights towards the continued exploration of this research agenda.
