LACO-Wiki is a project founded in 2014 and now operated by the project partners the
International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) and
GeoVille GmbH, henceforth the LACO-Wiki team. The project was initially
funded by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG)
in the Austrian Space Applications Programme (ASAP).
This project is based on the LACOVAL tool, which was available as an alpha prototype in 2013 and was funded by the European Space Agency (ESA).
Further developments of LACO-Wiki have been made possible by the Austrian Environment Agency (to support the validation of Copernicus high resolution layers) and ESA’s EO Science for Society initiative, which has helped to develop new features in LACO-Wiki and create an open source version of LACO-Wiki Mobile for in situ land cover data collection.
The LACO-Wiki logo is available in the following styles:
