Crowdsourcing provides access to a pool of human workers who can contribute solutions to tasks that are challenging for computers. Proposals have been made for the use of crowdsourcing in a wide range of data management tasks, including data gathering, query processing, data integration, and cleaning. We provide a classification of key features of these proposals and survey results to date, identifying recurring themes and open issues.
