      "Crowdsourcing " is the term used when an immense project is divided among a large group of participants.  The internet has facilitated a variety of such projects, such as scanning star maps looking for different types of galaxies.

      The National Geographic Society website has a crowdsourced project which asks participants to study satellite photos of Mongolia and "tag" significant findings (roads, ancient structures, modern structures).  There is a demo at the webpage to show how it works, and if you are interested you can sign up and start scanning satellite pix.   The National Geographic Society has a ground team that follows up to check the identified targets.
