A simple, intuitive, and versatile data collection mobile application to empower smallholders to monitor their value chains. Ground is an open-source, map-first data collection platform developed to drive sustainability impact at scale. Ground is designed for use by non-technical users with little to no special training.

Our goal is to provide a “just right” data collection solution that meets the needs of community organisers, conservationists, humanitarian workers and researchers. FAO and Google have joined forces to bring a next-generation mobile application that puts data back into the hands of local actors for action on the ground. Ground is designed to support a range of applications, including restoration activities, sustainable commodity production, and training data collection for machine learning.
