The aim of our study was to figure out the differences and similarities between manual land cover measurements and by using the Globe Observer App. We conducted our study on August 3rd 2022 near the Lainela Holiday Village in Käsmu, Estonia. We made our observations and collected data from one 30x30 meter site using materials provided by the GLOBE Program. We observed the land cover, tree heights and flora in the 30x30 area. Our results from both manual and app measurements were quite similar with some differences.
