Geo-Wiki

Geo-Wiki is a project founded in 2009 by the project partners the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis, University of Applied Sciences Wiener Neustadt and University of Freiburg. The Geo-Wiki Project is a global network of volunteers who wish to help improve the quality of global land cover maps. Volunteers are asked to review hotspot maps of global land cover disagreement and determine, based on what they actually see in Google Earth and their local knowledge, if the land cover maps are correct or incorrect.

USGS: New land cover data released for Alaska

Three panels from the National Land Cover Database depicting land cover change in the vicinity of Fairbanks, Alaska, from 2001 to 2011

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has released a new dataset for land cover in Alaska; it is publicly available and covers ten years. Based on Landsat satellite imagery taken in 2011, the data describe the land cover of each 30-meter cell of land in Alaska and identifies which ones have changed since the year 2001.

Data Application of the Month

Satellite-derived data relevant for disaster risk reduction and emergency response is available from many sources and providers. The UN-SPIDER database on satellite data and products offers links to datasets of satellite imagery, elevation models, land use and land cover maps as well as near real-time data products for different hazard types. But how can these datasets be used for particular hazards?

Copernicus GIO Global Land Service

The Global Land Component in the framework of GMES Initial Operations (GIO) is earmarked as a component of the Land service to operate “a multi-purpose service component” that will provide a series of bio-geophysical products on the status and evolution of land surface at global scale. Production and delivery of the parameters are to take place in a timely manner and are complemented by the constitution of long term time series.
