With the Geo-wiki pictures app, you can photograph landscapes and share your photos with friends and colleagues through Geo-Wiki.org, a visualization and crowdsourcing tool developed by IIASA for improving global land cover maps. Global land cover maps are used in a number of environmental applications including assessment of the effects of climate change, deforestation and impacts on biodiversity. Your photographs can help us to improve the quality and the validity of these land cover maps. The Pictures Geo-Wiki mobile app will automatically geo-reference your photos and tag them with information such as the compass direction and the angle of tilt along with the land cover type and other any other comments that you wish to add.
Note: Geo-Wiki Picture App for I phone and Windows Phone will become available soon.
