  1. 1. Collect Earth Multi-purpose land monitoring Alfonso Sanchez-Paus Lead developer
  2. 2. What is Collect Earth? A demo is worth a thousand words •Free and Open Source tool ( downloadable from www.openfori.org ) •Very High Resolution multi-temporal images from Google Earth and Bing Maps •Landsat 7 and 8 datasets from Google Earth Engine •Data Analysis through Saiku
  3. 3. History •Open Foris Initiative –Collect, Collect Mobile and Collect Earth –Calc –Geospatial Toolkit •BMU-ICI Project ( Capacity Building for REDD+ NFMS ) –18 Countries + more UN-REDD countries such as PNG and Mongolia
  4. 4. Use Cases •Support multi-phase National Forest Inventories •LULUCF assessments •Monitoring agricultural land and urban areas •Validation of existing maps •Collection of spatially explicit socio-economic data •Quantifying deforestation, reforestation and desertification
  5. 5. What do you want to analyze?
  6. 6. QGIS sampling grid Collect Earth Fusion Table CSV export Data processing HTML data entry form Google Earth interface Data analysis Collect Earth Supplementary high-res imagery Supplementary high-res imagery Single-user database Multi-user database Image analysis
  7. 7. Collect Earth KMZ HTTP Balloon – Network Link SQLite DB Data export Open Foris Collect Earth
  8. 8. UNFCCC reporting •Collection of activity data –Follow IPCC guidelines: •IPCC Vol.4 Chapter 3 (Consistent Representation of Lands) : Approach 3 Spatially-Explicit Land-Use Conversion Data –Sampling approach (same as Annex II countries) –Land use, land use conversion (at least from 2000) and Land Use Subdivision –Data directly importable to GHG inventory tools (ALU Tool/IPCC software) •Integrating other data sources (Climate zone and soil data)
  9. 9. Visual Interpretation applied to Agriculture •Plantations : e.g. Palm Oil plantations and Subsistence Agriculture in PNG. > 27000 plots assessed -> data can be included in GHG inventory •Eurostat LUCAS –N²O emissions for CAPRI –Linear elements
  10. 10. Google Earth Engine Support for NDVI, NDWI and EVI intra-year / inter-year analysis Feature for crop identification
  11. 11. z For Office Collect desktop is a flexible tool for office or field camp based inventory data entry. Customizable validation rules minimize data entry erros and feedback reports help to identify potential problems. Sub headline For Field Collect Mobile is an easy to use Collect client for mobile Android devices. Entering the data already in the field can significanlty improve the quality of the data and reduce time needed for data cleansing. For Fast Delivery Colleyc Earth is an interative image interpretation tool which users Google Earth interface. Collect Earth allows collection of land cover and land use information with the fastest possible way and with minimum GIS experience. TITLE COLLECT
  12. 12. z Easy Import Calc is a fully customizable tool for facilitated data analysis. You can import data directly from Collect, import external equations and build complex processing chains Sub headline For experts and end- users Calc is designed for both, experts and end users. Whereas the experts can build the processing chains, end users can just hit play and repreat the calculation processes. Reporting Calc results can be presented using Saiku Analytics. This allows easy reporting and presenting the results in both, tabular and graphical form. TITLE CALC
