The following data set shows the results of the 2018 FotoQuest Go Europe crowdsourcing campaign. This land cover and land use change monitoring citizen science campaign ran during the summer of 2018 and asked participants across Europe to use the FotoQuest mobile application and visit specific locations across the continent. The locations were taken from the 2015 LUCAS campaign, a 3-year land use and land cover survey undertaken by EUROSTAT. The participants were awarded between 1 and 3 euros for every location visited and up to 30 euros in special challenge locations. There was also a feedback mechanism that allowed IIASA researchers to review the each submitted quest, approve or reject it, and send feedback to the participants. The campaign and results are described in detail in the Land journal paper ?Crowdsourcing LUCAS: Citizens Generating Reference Land Cover and Land Use Data with a Mobile App? (Laso Bayas et al 2020) freely accessible here: . The word file accompanying the data describes all variables contained in the FotoQuest Go Europe 2018 data set.
