Adopt A PixelEntry ID: Adopt_A_Pixel_Service
Abstract: Adopt a Pixel is a ground-reference data acquisition system engaging citizen scientists to serve operational and research needs of the Landsat science community. CDI funding will support the establishment of the data infrastructure within the Operational Science group of the USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center. Currently, the Adopt a Pixel initiative resides in a pilot ... state. CDI funding will be utilized to create a user upload capability, a data ingest process and a data management system for storage of imagery and metadata; and to enable incorporation into the USGS Earth Explorer web-based user interface for the query and download by the end user. As the collection continues to grow users will be able to efficiently search and download numerous USGS-supported remote sensing datasets with the addition of linked ground reference photos provided by the user community.
Purpose: Unique ground-reference pixels are made available for download to the science community.
