NOTE: Tomnod continually changes campaigns. They often will temporarily take down a campaign to work on data – or they often add new imagery into an existing campaign. Every campaign has a different # of images, in a section, and in total. For example, in one campaign we worked on 500,000, then later, they added an additional 500,000.
Campaigns do change frequently.
The only time a campaign “ends” is when Tomnod believes they have enough data to achieve the mission or goal.
Usually the one that loads when you first sign on is the time-critical campaign or what they need finished first. However, you are permitted to switch in and out of any open campaign.
From my understanding, Tomnod sometimes assigns us to different campaigns. So you may not see all campaigns in the list below.
Here are the campaigns still open today.
California: Butte Fire
The Butte Fire started on 9 September 2015, and is burning near Jackson, California. The fire has grown to over 70,000 acres and over 500 structures have reportedly been destroyed.
Indonesia: Illegal burning
The number of fires burning across Indonesia the past couple weeks spiked past historic highs, causing a thick haze of toxic smoke to envelop major cities within Indonesia and those of neighboring countries. Help Global Forest Watch map fires across Indonesia by searching satellite imagery and tagging every fire and burn scar you find.
