Participatory sensing (PS) platforms enable stakeholders to
collect, analyse and visualise data for a particular interest.
Despite high societal demand, developing a new PS platform
remains a labour-intensive, nonreusable process that
requires high technical expertise. We present DISCOPAR, a
visual reactive flow-based domain-specific language geared
towards the construction of reusable citizen observatories.
With DISCOPAR, users interact with visual components to
implement the various elements of a PS platforms without
having to worry about its underlying technological complexities.
We validate our approach through experiments using
real-world empirical usability studies of ICT-agnostic users.
The results show that DISCOPAR allows users with limited
technological knowledge to create their own PS platform.
