Mapping and the citizen sensor

Project researchers

Accurate and timely maps are a fundamental resource but their production in a changing world is a major scientific and practical grand challenge. Remote sensing provides images for mapping at unparalleled rates but the ground reference data needed in map production and evaluation are difficult to acquire. The work is highly inter-disciplinary and involves a diverse array of contributors.

Goals: 
This Project aims at evaluating the utility of citizen sensors in mapping, debate means to encourage standardisation, coordination of activity and identify how mapping can proceed with imperfect data.
