About Collect Earth Online

Collect Earth Online is a custom built, open-source, satellite image viewing and interpretation system developed by SERVIR - a joint NASA and USAID program in partnership with regional technical organizations around the world - and the FAO as a tool for use in projects that require land cover and/or land use reference data. Collect Earth Online promotes consistency in locating, interpreting, and labeling reference data plots for use in classifying and monitoring land cover / land use change. The full functionality of Collect Earth Online, including collaborative compilation of reference point databases, is implemented online so there is no need for desktop installation. The Collect Earth Online codebase is shared through the Open Foris Initiative of the Food And Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.
