1. Take photographs of landscapes while on holiday or while out with your friends, which automatically adds a geographic coordinate, the compass direction and the angle of tilt to each photo.
2. Tag the photographs with any additional comments or text.
3. Tag the photographs with a land cover type based on a simple to use drop down menu. These land cover types are used to help us validate global land cover maps.
4. Upload these photos to Geo-Wiki.org, a site that allows you to visualize your photographs on Google Earth. The images can be uploaded via mobile connection or stored until you have Wi-Fi access.
