Google-powered Bar-drawing Zoo2 offshoot

Hello Zooites.

Once again we need your help with more detailed classifications of a
selection of galaxies.

We’ve made a sample of interesting galaxies from Galaxy Zoo2, most of
which have bar structures, and we would like you to measure the length
and thickness of the bars. Also we’d like you to check the shape of
the galaxy and tell us how the spiral arms and bars are linked.

We are also pioneering the use of the Google Maps interface for Galaxy
Zoo science, which allows us to perform tasks like drawing on
galaxies. Please note, that the bar drawing pages work best with
Mozilla Firefox.

Head over to our site: http://www.icg.port.ac.uk/~hoyleb/bars/ and
log in, using your Galaxy Zoo user name and password, to start
classifying.

We’ve describe the our science
rationale: htp://www.icg.port.ac.uk/~hoyleb/bars/tutorial.php#s1 and there is a forum topic related to this page: http://www.galaxyzooforum.org/index.php?topic=276269.0

See you on the bar site!

Bye,

Ben and Karen [on behalf of the bar drawing team].
