Tomnod – Identifying Objects on Maps

Do you ever watch the news and wish you could drop everything, travel half way around the world and help in the aftermath of a natural disaster? Or have you always dreamed of being an adventurer in far off places, helping in the efforts to save animals and discover lost civilisations but your bank balance and all-consuming fear of giant poisonous snakes – as well as ancient booby traps, which as everyone knows hold up pretty well after thousands of years – keeps preventing you? Well look no further would-be Indy’s or Croft’s.
With you can make a difference and explore far reaches of the world, without even abandoning your cup of tea. By searching and tagging satellite images of important locations you can be a part of a team solving real-world problems no matter where you are in the world. Compare before and after images to help pinpoint damaged buildings after earthquakes and floods, or search vast landscapes identifying anything from Weddell seals in the frozen Antarctic to reefs off of Papua Niugini.
Can be participated from anywhere in the world.
