The Global Forest Watch is a comprehensive, interactive online system to map forest, monitor forest change, and capture the underlying causes for deforestation and forest degradation. It is unique in providing global coverage at a high spatial (30m) and temporal (monthly) resolution, and providing online interactive tools to further customize the data to specific planning needs (e.g. canopy density, areas of interest, time frame). The tool(s) are simple and intuitive to use, making the data and analytical functions accessible to a wide range of non-technical decision makers.
