Land Cover Legend for the Assessment of Drivers of Deforestation and Forest Degradation in West Africa
Guide for Visual Interpretation of Drivers of Deforestation and Forest Degradation in the ECOWAS Region
Validation of Change with Collect Earth & Collect Earth Online
Collect Earth facilitates access to very high resolution (sub-meter) satellite imagery within Google Earth. The temporal availability of imagery varies across the ECOWAS region; however, the images that are available have single image acquisition dates, which is essential for identifying land use and land cover at specific periods of time within the assessment period. A simple Collect Earth survey was designed with Collect to import the sampling design and plot layout into Google Earth. The data collection functionality of Collect Earth is not used.
