The GLOBE Program would like to thank everyone who participated in the NASA GLOBE Land Cover Challenge 2022: Land Cover in a Changing Climate, which ran from 26 July through 26 August.

During this challenge, volunteer scientists used The GLOBE Program’s mobile app, GLOBE Observer, to collect observations of land cover, tying in with the 50th anniversary of the Landsat satellite and with a special focus on land cover in a changing climate. Participants sent in over 1,600 observations during the challenge period (compared to the average of about 300 a month during the first five months of 2022). Observations came from 180+ individual observers at over 1,100 different data collection sites in 28 countries and from all six GLOBE regions.
