  1. 1. Collect Earth & Earth Map Land monitoring and analysis Alfonso Sanchez-Paus Land Monitoring Specialist
  2. 2. Augmented Visual Interpretation • Data Collection tool integrated in Google Earth. Free access to Very High Resolution imagery. • Multitemporal imagery thanks to Google Earth, Bing Maps and High Resolution Imagery from Google Earth Engine. See video.
  3. 3. Geo-link between 3 data repositories
  4. 4. Access to 40 years of satellite data through Google Earth Engine Sentinel 2 &1 Landsat 5,7,8 MODIS Climate data
  5. 5. Learn more about the rest of the software suite online FREE AND OPEN SOURCE
  6. 6. Collect Earth user cases Collect Earth facilitates the analysis of high and very high resolution satellite imagery for a wide variety of purposes, including : • Monitoring agricultural land and urban areas • Collection of spatially explicit socio-economic data (Vietnam) • Quantifying deforestation, reforestation and desertification (UN-REDD FREL ) • Support multi-phase National Forest Inventories • Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry (LULUCF) assessments (18 partnering countries)
  7. 7. Data Analysis - Saiku • Fast, intuitive and flexible data analysis • Powerful tool for data quality control • Data export to Excel, CSV and PDF • Produce colorful and informative charts and graphs with a few clicks • Export graphics to JPG, PNG or other formats
