The Environmental Mapping team has projects all over the world. Read more about all of our projects listed below:

SIG and its partners created Collect Earth Online (CEO), a free, open-source system for viewing and interpreting high-resolution satellite imagery. The projection is a collaboration with NASA SERVIR, SilvaCarbon, the USDA Forest Service, and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). The codebase is shared through the FAO’s Open Foris initiative, which promotes flexible and efficient data collection, analysis, and reporting.

Initiated in 2021, this five-year partnership will develop a consistent geospatial data ecosystem that will  enable all actors — local, government, producers, traders and financiers — to access consistent, open source, publicly available, and validated geospatial data related to forest-risk commodities and restoration.  Action plans include engaging and aligning with stakeholders, identifying data gaps, and deploying  consistent, open-source, and validated data on commodities most linked to deforestation and forest  degradation.

SIG provides partnership development and project management support to the Science and Data Lead for SERVIR Amazonia, a $9 million NASA and USAID-funded program to deliver geospatial information to organizations in the Amazon region. SIG is supporting SERVIR by providing expertise on geospatial technologies, including: land use and land cover monitoring systems leveraging machine learning to identify habitat change; climate suitability models for planning climate-resilient landscapes; geospatial scenario analyses to assist with water-related conflict resolution; and ecosystem service evaluations integrating soil carbon, biodiversity, and water resources.

The goal of SERVIR South East Asia (formerly known as SERVIR Mekong) is to enhance climate change adaptation and landscape management in the Lower Mekong region through the increased application of geospatial analysis to critical, urgent, or common policy and planning needs, especially in the context of disaster risk reduction and response, Mekong basin development, water security, food security, and landscape management to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The project objectives, corresponding results, indicators, targets, and activities to explain how the ADPC team expects to address the needs and challenges are provided in the Performance Management Plan given in Annex 1. A summary table on results and result indicators is provided in the Proposed Results/Outcomes section.
