LandSense connects citizens with satellite imagery to CREATE new knowledge about the planet, INNOVATE citizen-powered science for impact, KICKSTART an EO-enabled crowdsourced economy, and SUPPORT environmental decision making.
LandSense is building an innovative citizen observatory for Land Use & Land Cover (LULC) monitoring, by connecting citizens with satellite imagery to transform current approaches to environmental decision making. LandSense aims to uncover the collective potential of citizen science and Earth observation (EO) data to improve the way people see, map and understand the world.
Citizen Observatories are community-driven mechanisms to complement existing systems for improved environmental monitoring. They are fostered through innovative and novel EO mobile applications, allowing citizens to not only play a key role in LULC monitoring, but also to be directly involved in the co-creation of such solutions. As such, the contributions and collaboration of citizens play a vital role in LandSense.
A series of LandSense tools and services will be demonstrated across three LandSense Themes to illustrate the power and flexibility of the LandSense Citizen Observatory to tackle different environmental monitoring issues.
