Living Earth

Living Earth is a globally applicable method of generating consistent characterisation, mapping and monitoring from Earth observation data.

This has been used to support operational land/water monitoring in Wales (UK; Living Wales) and Australia (1980s to present; Digital Earth Australia Land Cover) and is being developed for application in other countries and regions.
