Mapas 2014 (12) Global Forest Watch

global forest watch

The United Nations Environmental Program, ESRI, Google and environmental groups have launched Global Forest Watch, a website that tries to track in real time the deforestation and forestation dynamics around the world. It is a premiere, with some room to kvetch: for instance, an industrial palm plantation (for an ecologist as speculative an investment as a golf course) is not discriminated from an old forest full of biodiversity. But it is, anyway, an interesting source.
