The Planet Four research team have recently written a paper based on the work of the ~80,000 volunteers who have contributed to the project. Together they identified almost half a million features on the south polar Martian surface. These volunteer annotations have allowed to researchers to map the surface winds on Mars in unprecedented detail.
