Geo-location is becoming more important; timely information on land use and land cover (LULC) is thus essential. LULC maps rely on Earth Observation (EO) imagery and classification algorithms. Through Web 2.0-based "volunteered geographic information" technologies such as the OpenStreetMap (OSM), citizen scientists can provide timely LULC data. By integrating this data with satellite imagery and advanced statistical methods, detailed and more frequently updated LULC and change maps can be made. Using openly available tools via the LandSense Engagement Platform, this interactive "mapathon" allows (online) participants to assess and validate semi-urban LULC maps, bringing together data from EO (orthophotos) and OSM (osmlanduse.org). In this session, participants will gain first-hand knowledge of how the power of the crowd can be used to create, update, and validate maps. Participants can then take this experience and apply it to their own mapping needs. The mapathon is linked to #territorialdata.
