WeObserve 1st CO4EO Workshop: Citizen Science and Conventional Earth Observation Interaction
July 2 @ 11:00 - 15:00
Organised by the H2020 WeObserve project (www.weobserve.eu), this special session/workshop is aiming to explore success stories where citizen science data are combined with conventional sources of Earth observation data. In particular best practices arising from the activities of four current H2020 Citizen Observatories (LandSense, SCENT, GROW, Ground Truth 2.0) as well as from other projects will be demonstrated, illustrating the integration of Earth observation and citizen science data for improved environmental monitoring. Particular emphasis will be given in the field of Land Use and Land Cover (LU/LC), harnessing the power of citizens to create actionable knowledge for participatory governance and policy making. In addition, potential solutions and promotion of policy adoption will be discussed on overcoming limitations of citizen science data in Earth observation applications.
