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.
