GLOBE officially went live this past week at the 2nd Global Land Project (GLP) Open Science Meeting (OSM) in Berlin, Gemany last week (March 19-21). The conference featured a variety of opportunities for land change science researchers to become familiar with, and use GLOBE for the first time.
During the conference a GLOBE information table and help desk gave researchers new to GLOBE an opportunity to become familiar with the system and enter case studies, as well as receive a user name and instruction on how to use GLOBE’s different analyses. More than 50 new case studies have already been entered into the GLOBE system as part of the GLP OSM! Here is a link to them in GLOBE doi: 10.7933/K1D798BD (NOTE: only logged in users can see them all)
Erle Ellis, Nick Magliocca, Wayne Lutters, Alyson Young, Jared Margulies, and Lindsey Gordon of UMBC all presented research relating to GLOBE, ranging from an overview of GLOBE’s capabilities to a meta-study using GLOBE’s Representativeness Analysis.
On Friday, March 21st, there was a 1.5 hour GLOBE workshop which allowed a packed room of participants to ask more detailed questions about GLOBE and get assistance in uploading case studies into the GLOBE system.
