Livestock Geo-Wiki

The Livestock Geo-Wiki is an online geo-data tool, that allows not only for visualisation of geo-data but also allows for crowd-sourcing. The Geo-Wiki is used to provide a central viewer, validation tool and repository for livestock distributions and production systems data. The module currently contains data on livestock distributions (cattle, chicken, duck, pig, sheep & goat) as well as the intensive, semi-intensive and extensive systems for pig and chicken keeping. Beyond this, the platform aims to develop a comprehensive global livestock information system, and will be complemented by modules on major global benefit and impact linked to the livestock sector in i) poverty and growth, ii) health and nutrition and iii) climate and natural resource management as new data is produced.

Summary of uses: • Collecting, evaluating or sharing data on livestock distribution • Validating livestock data
