During this webinar, Peder Nelson will introduce and detail the Collect Earth online tool. Collect Earth is designed so that users can analyze high and very high-resolution satellite imagery for different purposes, including: land cover, land use, and forest mapping. Peder will also discuss why we need ground-based photos, including clouds and land cover, via the GLOBE Observer Citizen Science App. A Collect Earth connection to wildlife, ie. mosquitoes will also be highlighted. Prior to the webinar, it is recommended that all participants visit the Collect Earth Website.
