New web tool to improve accuracy of global land cover maps
Date:2/14/2012

an area of about 12-15,000km2.

Geo-Wiki draws on the global network of satellites and technologies that form GEOSS, the Global Earth Observation System of Systems. GEOSS links existing and planned observing systems around the world to support the development of new systems. The aim is ultimately to improve the benefit society gains from earth observations by improving forecasting in areas such as deforestation, environmental disasters, disease outbreak, climate change or mapping ecosystem change.

To maximize the value of Geo-Wiki the developers are encouraging people to get involved. In a similar way to the immensely popular bird watching 'eBird project' (ebird.org) - which has some 48 million records of bird sightings globally - the value of Geo-Wiki will be realized through the involvement of the global community.
