LACO-Wiki is a web-based solution for validating land cover and land use maps. Using a variety of reference layers including satellite and aerial imagery from Google and Bing as well as OpenStreetMap, validation is a simple four-step process. After uploading your dataset, generate and validate the samples and create a report with the accuracy assessment.
This latest version of LACO-Wiki was released in March 2020. Please use this version even though it may not contain any data sets, samples, validation sessions or accuracy reports that you uploaded or generated in the past. You can still access these files in the old version of LACO-Wiki at:https://old.laco-wiki.net. Note that we will migrate your data sets, samples, validation sessions and accuracy reports in the future. We will let you know when this migration has occurred. In the meantime, please upload any old data sets to this new version if you wish to continue working with them. If you have any questions, please email us at:email@example.com.
Share your validated samples with us and you will help to build an open database that can be used to improve future land cover and land use maps.
