On 22 June 2021, the Global Forest Observation Initiative (GFOI) and the World Bank launched OpenMRV, an open-source repository for user-friendly measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) support resources and instructional materials. Collect Earth Online (CEO) is featured as a key resource on OpenMRV.
To better understand and serve users, the creators of Collect Earth Online issued a survey in March 2021. Input was collected from more than 110 CEO users working for NGOs and government agencies in 58 countries. The survey revealed that CEO has attracted a global community of users who rely on the platform to drive high-impact work monitoring deforestation and other types of land use change.
