The UN Launches New Edition of Tool for Fighting Poverty Using Satellite Images

The United Nations' Organization for Food and Agriculture (FAO) jointly with the World food Program and the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR recently launched a new version of the FAO GeoNetwork.
This tool uses Satellite imagery and spatial databases to assist countries to fight hunger and rural poverty. Users overlay maps from multiple servers housed at development institutions worldwide to create customized thematic maps on their own computers covering such variables as land cover, soil quality, vegetation, population density and marketing access.
Access the tool from the following link: http://www.fao.org/geonetwork/srv/en/main.home
