In December 2018, FAO launched a new open-access tool 'Collect Earth Online (CEO)' that allows anyone to track land-use and landscape changes anywhere.
CEO is now available through FAO's Open Foris platform - a set of free and open-source software tools that facilitate flexible and efficient data collection, analysis and reporting.
CEO tool amplifies the power of FAO's Open Foris Collect Earth tool, thus further strengthening the comprehensive measuring, monitoring and reporting on forests and Land use with the help of high-resolution satellite imagery.
The CEO tool is developed by US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), with support from the Google Earth Engine Team and the US Government's SilvaCarbon Program.
