New Photo Upload for Climate and Land Cover Project
The month of October is an Intensive Observing Period (IOP) for the Climate and Land Cover (CLC) Project. The GLOBE Program Office has created a photo upload link in the data entry pages for community members who are participating. These links will store your photos, which will be available on the new GLOBE visualization system in the future.
Photos submitted before July 2012 are currently available through the new visualization system.
Using GLOBE land cover protocols, students take photographs and classify representative land cover areas near their schools and upload these data to the GLOBE database. These data can be used by students to compare land cover around the world and will be used by scientists to improve land cover classifications for climate models. Take part in the CLC Intensive Observing Period (IOP) throughout the month of October.
