"Crowdsourcing" a Tool for Mapping African Farmlands
A mapping effort called "crowdsourcing" has been developed by a team from Princeton University. It will be used to determine whether land on the sub-Saharan Africa terrain is being actively farmed. The team includes Professor Kelly Caylor, Woodrow Wilson researcher Lyndon Estes, OIT analyst Dennis McRitchie, Wilson School lecturer William Guthe, and 2 undergraduates Jonathan Choi '15 and Reka Zempleni '16.
