Connecting citizens with satellite imagery to transform environmental decision making


LandSense Aims

Uncovering the potential of citizen science and earth observation to improve the way we see, map, and understand the world

Kickstarting an earth observation enabled crowdsourcing economy

LandSense Objectives

Assess current practices, user requirements and barriers of present Land Use and Land Cover (LULC) technologies and illustrate the potential of citizen observatories.

Engage key stakeholders in the LandSense platform, facilitating the collection, integration, management, and presentation of LULC data.

Deliver innovative and scalable services and implement a strategy detailing the sustainable exploitation of these technologies post-project.

Demonstrate the quality, confidence and added value of citizen-driven observations and citizen engagement for improved LULC monitoring.

Promote the uptake of LandSense technologies, solutions, and products for large-scale LULC monitoring across the EU using the LandSense Services Incubator.
