landdegradation is a python package to facilitate analyzing remotely-sensed
datasets in support of monitoring land degradation. This project contains
common code used by the scripts in the trends.earth.gee repository.
This package was produced as an output of the Global Environment Facility (GEF)-funded project “Enabling the use of global data sources to assess and monitor land degradation at multiple scales”. The project aims to provide guidance on robust methods and a toolbox for assessing, monitoring status, and estimating trends in land degradation using remote sensing technology. For additional information on the project see http://vitalsigns.org/gef-ldmp.
The Land Degradation Monitoring Project is a collaboration of Conservation International, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and Lund University.
