    • Building a Crowd-sourcing Tool for the Validation of Urban Extent and Gridded Population
      Steffen Fritz, Linda See, Ian McCallum, Christian Schill, ChristophPerger and Michael Obersteiner
      International Institute of Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA)
      Austria
    • Importance of global land cover
      Global land cover is baseline information for a wide variety of application:
      To delineate ecosystems
      Inputs to global models of land use and land use change, e.g. Globiom
      Climate change mitigation policies e.g. REDD
      Biofuel debate: where is the additional land?
      Food security
    • Problems with global land cover
      When different products are compared, there are lots of disagreement between them
      One might say cropland, another forest
      Confusing if you are a user – which one is correct? Which is the best product to use?
      Study by Quaife et al – on veg modelling
      Disagreement overall and/or spatially
    • Disagreement in Crop/Forest Domains
    • Spatial disagreement
    • Urban areas
      Rapid urbanisation – led to many problems
      > 50% of the world’s pop live in cities
      By 2050, set to increase to 80%
      Accurate figures needed to estimate resource use, e.g. future carbon emissions, domestic water consumption, infrastructure, housing, etc.
      Difficult to classify
    • Estimates from different products
    • Disagreement in the urban domain
    • Urban disagreement between GLC-2000 and MODIS
    • geo-wiki.org
      Crowd-sourcing application to improve land cover
    • Architecture
    • urban.geo-wiki.org
    • Disagreement layers
    • Validation of urban land cover
    • Validation of urban land cover
    • GRUMP population layer
    • Future Developments for urban.geo-wiki.org
      Building a hybrid map of urban areas – already carried out for the cropland domain
      Addition of other datasets
      E.g. Night time luminosity, Open Street Map
      Ability to validate the population data
      Addition of a gaming element
      Change studies through integration of Landsat imagery
      30 m land cover map being developed
    • Validation Competition
      We will be running a competition this summer
      Email me (see@iiasa.ac.at) or see me afterwards and I will put you on the mailing list
      Register for urban.geo-wiki.org
      Validate at least 100 points to qualify
      Highest number of validations will be awarded a prize
    • Thank you!
