The polygons in this layer represent approved concessions for mineral exploration and extraction, as well as concessions in application or available concessions. The shapefiles are compiled by Tierra Minada , a Colombian civil society group, utilizing information from the Colombian Mining Registry, which is maintained by the National Mining Agency.
The mining sector in Cambodia is mostly undeveloped, and active mining enterprises are typically small-scale quarries producing materials for construction, such as laterite, marble, granite, limestone, gravel and sand. There are also thousands of artisanal miners recovering gold and gemstones, often on a seasonal or part-time basis. There is no industrial-scale extraction of minerals, although many exploration licenses have been granted to mining companies and some have reported promising finds of gold.
The legality of mining operations on lands traditionally managed by indigenous people requires clarification. This dataset contains data for mining licenses in Cambodia with contract dates starting from to Due to the lack of publicly available information, this dataset does not include information on implementation status of mines or change in ownership of mining licenses.
This data set displays plantation concessions as a single layer assembled by aggregating data for multiple countries. If you are aware of plantation concession data for additional countries, please email us here. This data layer shows the boundaries of agro-industrial zones, where oil palm and rubber tree plantations, as well as other crops, may be established. In Cameroon, industrial agriculture falls outside of the National Forest Estate.
Agricultural plantations are allocated by the Ministry of Economy and Planning to private entities under long-term, renewable contracts, which are then monitored by the Ministry of Agriculture.
The agro-industrial data set was mapped using satellite imagery, with ground-truthing to determine the crop type and operating company. Official documentation was often lacking, so boundaries should be considered approximate and nonexhaustive. This data set, produced by the Indonesia Ministry of Forestry, provides the boundaries of current or planned oil palm plantations in Indonesia.
This data set is known to be incomplete, but it is currently the best available. This data set provides the boundaries of known oil palm plantations for Liberia and was compiled by Global Witness from available government maps. Information provided with this data set includes company, ownership group, and land area. This data set provides the boundaries for oil palm plantations according to the Republic of the Congo Ministry of Agriculture.
This data set displays oil palm concessions as a single layer assembled by aggregating concession data for multiple countries. This data set provides the boundaries of known oil palm concessions for the state of Sarawak, Malaysia, and was compiled from available public documents.
Where available, associated information provided with this data set includes licensee name, permit number Operational Ticket , corporate grouping, permit date, and official license area.
This data set also includes areas under License for Planted Forest LPF agreements where oil palm has been planted for one rotation, where available. The data set combines the boundaries of oil palm licenses obtained from Environmental Impact Assessment EIA reports for individual oil palm and LPF concessions spanning various dates and a regional State Forestry Department map from for northern Sarawak. Licenses and licensee subsidiaries have been attributed to major corporate groups based on published company records and secondary sources.
A number of the oil palm concession licenses are split into non-contiguous parts. These 'Parts' are not official names, but rather naming conventions used in the GIS cleaning of the data. This data set displays wood fiber concessions as a single layer assembled by aggregating concession data for multiple countries.
This data set, produced by the Indonesia Ministry of Forestry, provides the boundaries of current or planned wood fiber plantations in Indonesia.
This data set is known to be incomplete, but it is compiled from the best information currently available. This data set provides the boundaries for eucalyptus and other plantations in the Republic of the Congo. LPFs have a maximum tenure of 60 years, and must be over 1, hectares in size.
Though they are designed for the purpose of planting of timber trees mostly acacia , licensees are permitted to plant a portion of their licensed area with oil palm trees for a single rotation. Where information on the areas within LPFs allotted for oil palm is available, the boundaries of these areas have been plotted and included in the separate dataset on oil palm concessions in Sarawak.
Information on the permit issuance date, official total area in hectares, and plantable area in hectares for LPF licenses has been obtained directly from EIA reports or from secondary sources which have drawn on such reports. Information on area of each LPF license planted up to where provided has been obtained from official published reports or websites of relevant companies. It should be noted that it is common for LPF licenses to overlap with current Timber Licenses see separate logging concession dataset for Sarawak.
In such instances, LPF clearance and planting only proceeds in individual zones within the LPF when the Timber License holder has completed its own activities. This data is not official data from the Indonesian Ministry of Environmental and Forestry. As a result, this data may differ from official data and there may be inaccuracies. Over 35 times the size of Singapore, this majestic and ancient ecosystem covers more than 2. The Leuser Ecosystem is the last place on earth where orangutans, rhinos, elephants, and tigers co-exist in the wild.
The Leuser Ecosystem is the only remaining habitat left in Sumatra large enough to sustain viable populations of these species. The Leuser Ecosystem is an essential asset for the economic development of Aceh, providing a total economic value of at least million US dollars per year.
The Leuser Ecosystem acts as a life-support system for approximately four million people in Aceh. The primary ecosystem services are fresh water provision and disaster mitigation. The forests of the Leuser Ecosystem act as a sponge, soaking up the downpours of the rainy season and spreading out the release of water downstream more evenly across the months.
Deforestation of this environmentally sensitive area is having a dramatic impact by increasing the damage caused by flooding and landslides, and causing economic damage to communities and downstream industry. Locally and globally, the Leuser Ecosystem also has immense environmental value due to its role in climate regulation and carbon storage. Efforts to conserve the Leuser Ecosystem date as far back as the early 19th century, when the traditional leaders of Aceh lobbied the colonial government to protect their natural heritage, ranging from the mountains all the way down to the coast.
More recent laws have served to strengthen the protection of the Leuser Ecosystem and placed the responsibility for managing its protection and restoration with the Aceh Provincial Government Article of National Law on Governing Aceh No.

Logging roads are often a first step to deforestation and forest degradation, but they are generally remote and sporadically used, making them difficult to monitor. Volunteers use satellite imagery to trace roads and identify the date the road appears. Indicators of ecosystem health are grouped into the categories of river fragmentation, biodiversity, and water quality.
The database was created and published by International Rivers in The Dam Hotspots data contains over 5, dam locations determined by latitude and longitude coordinates. The data set comes from multiple sources, and was corrected for location errors by International Rivers.
Conservation data measure information that is important for preservation and enhancement of protected areas and natural resources such as biodiversity. Therefore, the associated IUCN category and its description of protection may also vary by country. Protected areas with no boundary data are displayed as brown dotted boxes, which represent the reported protected area size.
The box is centered around a single point location and the borders do not indicate the real boundary of the protected area. Protected area data are provided via protectedplanet. Not all protected areas receive the same degree of protection. While some have strict guidelines designed to preserve intact ecosystems, others allow for sustainable land use, often including limited resource extraction.
In addition, not all countries use the same terminology when designating a protected area. Accordingly, the International Union for Conservation of Nature defined universal management categories that stipulate the level of protection for most protected areas.

When Myers first defined the term, he identified 10 tropical forest hotspots. The need to pinpoint priority conservation regions led Conservation International CI to adopt the term and reassess the hotspot concept. In this process, CI introduced quantitative thresholds see above and added additional regions. At that time, there were 25 hotspots. Because of the constant change in environmental threats and the improved understanding of biodiversity, CI has since revisited the hotspots to refine boundaries, update information, and add new regions.
This process produced an additional 10 hotspots, bringing the total to Learn more or download data at Conservation International. No single biogeographic framework is optimal for all taxa. Ecoregions reflect the best compromise for as many taxa as possible. Most ecoregions contain habitats that differ from their assigned biome e. Ecoregions are defined as relatively large units of land or water containing a distinct assemblage of natural communities sharing a large majority of species, environmental conditions, and processes, such as migrations or fire disturbance regimes.
The terrestrial ecoregions are classified into 14 different biomes, such as forests, grasslands, or deserts. Ecoregions represent the original distribution of distinct assemblages of species and communities. The TEOW data set was developed by WWF through primary analysis, secondary research, and consultation of existing biogeographic maps and regional experts.
Terrestrial ecoregions of the world: While ODC takes every effort to ensure that the details in this map are accurate and up to date, some of the protected areas marked on the map may have since been downsized or degazetted since the map was published.
Moreover, additional protected areas may have been approved that are not yet included here. A protected area is a defined space given extra protection to support long-term conservation of wildlife, nature, ecosystems and cultures. The royal decree establishes four categories: In , the Royal Government of Cambodia adopted the Law on Protected Areas introducing and defining a new zoning system to manage the protected areas in Cambodia.
The law, under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Environment, underlines the expansion and modification of protected areas categories which additionally include the Ramsar sites, biosphere reserves, natural heritage sites and marine parks.
Since the Protected Areas Law was passed, numerous sub-decrees have been passed classifying areas as Sustainable Use Zones degazettement. According to the law, after consulting with relevant ministries and institutions, local authorities, and local communities, the Government may permit development and investment activities in these zones.
These activities can include infrastructure development, including irrigation and hydroelectricity projects, mining and resin exploitation. This dataset contains data for five types of protected areas in Cambodia national park, wildlife sanctuary, protected landscape, multiple use, Ramsar site with issuing dates starting from to Data for biosphere reserves, national heritage sites, and marine parks is currently not available on ODC.
Due to the lack of publicly available spatial information on zoning and degazettement of protected areas, this dataset does not include information on adjustments. Some of the TPAs are gazetted, while others remain ungazetted and are classified as 'proposed'. Three principal map sources were used: TPAs which are entirely over water are not included.
The status of each protected area given in this data set is based on the list of gazetted TPAs as of 31st December given on the website of the Sarawak Forestry Corporation accessed November , and the Sarawak Forestry Department Annual Report of This data set displays the boundaries of six Brazilian continental biomes: The names used were the most common and popular in general associated with the predominant type of vegetation or relief, as in the case of Pantanal biome, which is the highest provincial flooded surface of the world.
The Amazon Biome is defined by the climatic region, forest physiognomy and geographic location. The Atlantic Forest biome, which occupies the entire Brazilian continental east Atlantic coast and stretches inland in the Southeast and South, is defined by the predominant forest vegetation and diverse relief.
The Pampa, restricted to Rio Grande do Sul, is defined by a set of field vegetation in plain relief. To read more about the data set, please visit: While many bird species are widespread, over 2, are endemic and restricted to an area smaller than 5 million hectares restricted-range species.
BirdLife International has mapped every restricted-range species using geo-referenced locality records. Half of all restricted-range species are globally threatened or near-threatened, and the other half remain vulnerable to loss or degradation of habitat. The majority of EBAs are also important for the conservation of restricted-range species from other animal and plant groups.

Tiger Conservation Landscapes were created under the assumption that suitable habitat depends on quality and size of land cover and prey base. Land cover data was problematic in certain geographies due to the presence of tree plantations.
In some cases, forest cover was overestimated or underestimated. The tiger location database, on which this data set was built, is incomplete for some regions, and the data comes from a variety of sources and research methods. Tiger Conservation Landscapes TCLs are large blocks of contiguous or connected area of suitable tiger habitat that that can support at least five adult tigers and where tiger presence has been confirmed in the past 10 years.
The data set was created by mapping tiger distribution, determined by land cover type, forest extent, and prey base, against a human influence index. Areas of high human influence that overlapped with suitable habitat were not considered tiger habitat.
Tigers require a large area to survive. Before this data set, many countries containing tigers did not have spatially explicit tiger habitat maps necessary to develop habitat conservation and management plans. Among others, this information gap was an impetus to developing the TCL data set.
This data set displays 29 Tx2 Tiger Conservation Landscapes Tx2 TCLs , defined areas that could double the wild tiger population through proper conservation and management by The number of wild tigers has declined from an estimated , in the early s to a current estimate of around 3, adult animals.
In response to this rapid decline, government officials convened in November to endorse the St. Petersburg Declaration, pledging to double the wild tiger population by To aid in this effort, Wikramanayake and his team conducted a landscape analysis of tiger habitat to determine if a recovery of such magnitude is possible. They identified 29 Tiger Conservation Landscapes with potential for doubling wild tiger population with proper conservation and management.
A landscape-based conservation strategy to double the wild tiger population. Conservation Letters, 4 3: Corridors are defined as existing forests connecting current Royal Bengal tiger meta-populations in Nepal and India.
The TAL is spread over 4. This landscape has the second largest population of rhinos, one of the highest densities of tiger populations, and is home to the Asiatic elephant.
In Nepal, TAL encompasses 2. These projects reduce emissions from forest-related activities around the world and apply robust GHG accounting methodologies to quantify such emission reductions, which are independently verified and transparently registered. This information will be added in the future as these programs register under the VCS. There is no census for publicly-held easements so the total number of publicly-held easements is based on the data collection efforts of NCED.
Voluntary and secure, the NCED respects landowner privacy and will not collect landowner names or sensitive information. This public-private partnership brings together national conservation groups, local and regional land trusts, and state and federal agencies around a common objective. Before the NCED was created no single, nationwide system existed for sharing and managing information about conservation easements.
By building the first national database and web site to access this information, the NCED helps agencies, land trusts, and other organizations plan more strategically, identify opportunities for collaboration, advance public accountability, and raise the profile of what's happening on-the-ground in the name of conservation. With the initial support of the U. Endowment for Forestry and Communities , NCED is the result of a collaboration between five environmental non-profits: Learn more or request data.

Updated when a national protected area is modified or established. These areas are divided in three categories of use: In indirect areas, the extraction of natural resources or other types of environmental modification are not allowed. These areas only permit non-manipulative scientific investigation and tourist, recreational, educational, and cultural activities under regulated conditions.
The following are indirect use areas:. In direct use areas, the use of natural resources is allowed, primarily by local people, under the guidelines of a Management Plan approved and supervised by the relevant national authority. The following are direct use areas:. In addition to the above categories, Reserved Zones are established as a transitory category in areas that have the conditions necessary to be considered as a natural protected area, but that require additional study to determine their extension and category, among other things.

The environmental, biological, or scenic properties of this land are complementary to the coverage of national PAs, supporting biodiversity conservation and increasing the opportunities for scientific investigation, education, and tourism. Lands located inside of buffer zones are prioritized for private PAs. A breach of the obligations of the agreement on the part of the land owner results in the loss of recognition as a private PA.
El reconocimiento de las ACP se basa en un acuerdo entre el Estado y el titular del predio a fin de conservar la diversidad biológica en dicho predio por un período no menor a 10 años renovables. El incumplimiento de las obligaciones de este acuerdo por parte del titular del predio determina la pérdida de su reconocimiento como ACP.
Shows the distribution of regional protected areas. This layer shows protected areas that are managed by regional governments. The laws established for national protected areas also apply, where relevant, to regional protected areas.
Regional protected areas are not divided into categories, but this does not mean that their conservation objectives are all the same. Regional protected areas are managed in coordination with municipalities, native or rural communities, other people that live in the area, and public and private institutions.
Administration of regional protected areas can be delegated, with prior permission of the regional government, to individuals with interest and the ability to manage the area. Regional protected areas respect pre-existing rights within their interior, but these activities should be compatible with the goal of national heritage. The laws of many countries separate land rights from resource rights.
Legally recognized land rights extend to the land and certain resources associated with the land, depending on the nature of the right. The right to the land and certain resources include some combination of rights of access, use, management, exclusion, and alienation.
Similarly, legally recognized resource rights can cover some combination of the right to access, use, manage, exclude, or alienate forests, wildlife, or other resources. Whether rights to the land or resources, the law may recognize their rights in perpetuity or for a limited period of time.
Some data sets displayed on Global Forest Watch include land and resource rights governed by customary tenure systems but that are not recognized by national laws.
The exact nature of these land rights varies among tenure type and country. The land rights data on GFW, while displayed as a single layer, is assembled on a country-by-country basis from multiple sources.
Land rights data displayed on the GFW website vary from country to country by date and data sources.

To learn more about each data set click the information icons in the dropdown menu under the Forest Change tab located above the map.
This layer shows recent satellite imagery, as provided by Google Earth Engine, from the following sensors:. Hover on an image to see the capture date and sensor name. The most recent image for an area is shown, click to view other images or change the time period. Users can also change the maximum cloud cover percentage in the menu, which sets the threshold for excluding cloudy images.
Sentinel hub provides the following renderings of the images: This index is mapped from a white to green hue, where green pixels indicate good crop health and white pixels indicate poor crop health or an absence of vegetation. It is more sensitive to variations in canopy structure than NDVI, and is better at controlling background noise. EVI is not available for Deimos-1 imagery. The calculated pixel values range from blue to brown - where blue indicates the presence of water, and brown indicates dryer land.
It is another tool to determine crop health and condition. False color NIR Near infrared: Vegetation reflects infrared light, so it generally shows up as bright red.
Select which sensor you would like to view imagery from. Each sensor has a different resolution, revisit time, minimum date, and geographic coverage. See the table below for details. The default selection, "all sensors," will show the most recent image that meets other specified criteria, such as maximum cloud coverage percentage, for any given area. Move the slider to adjust the maximum percentage of cloud cover for available imagery. Thus, loss of tree cover may occur for many reasons, including deforestation, fire, and logging within the course of sustainable forestry operations.
Similarly, tree cover gain may indicate the growth of tree canopy within natural or managed forests. The payload of the POST request contains all of your subscription's information in a machine readable format. You can implement your own logic on your webserver to process the incoming alerts and include them directly in your application. The blob includes general metadata for your subscription, the time period covered, the number of alerts, as well as a link to the GFW map.
Depending on the type of subscription, you may receive additional information. We currently only send you the 10 most recent alerts.

Forest change Forest change data measure tree cover loss, tree cover gain, or forest disturbance. Tree Cover Canopy Density Settings. Tree cover loss is not always deforestation. The use of Landsat 8 data for and Landsat 5 data for The reprocessing of data from the previous two years in measuring loss and for the update, and for the update Improved training data for calibrating the loss model Improved per sensor quality assessment models to filter input data Improved input spectral features for building and applying the loss model These changes lead to a different and improved detection of global tree cover loss.
Some examples of improved change detection in the — update include the following: Improved detection of boreal forest loss due to fire Improved detection of smallholder rotation agricultural clearing in dry and humid tropical forests Improved detection of selective logging These are examples of dynamics that may be differentially mapped over the period in Version 1.
This data set shows annual deforestation between and Download at project website. In the future will expand to cover the humid tropics Source Hansen, M. Near-real time forest disturbance alerts using Landsat data. Environmental Research Letters , in review. Frequency of updates Updated weekly Date of content January - present Cautions While Landsat 7 and 8 satellites together have a revisit period of 8 days, cloud cover can majorly limit the availability of imagery, particularly in the wet season.
This layer displays the geographic coverage of GLAD alerts. Gran Chaco deforestation monthly, 30m, Gran Chaco, Guyra. License CC BY 4. Overview The tropical dry forests of the Gran Chaco region in Paraguay, Argentina, and Bolivia have become a hotspot of deforestation as cattle ranching and soy expand into the area. This layer displays the geographic coverage of the Gran Chaco deforestation data. Explanation Tree cover loss alerts appear when and where new, large-scale loss is likely to have occurred after Data applications The alerts have been designed for quick identification of tree cover loss as it happens.
Accuracy and validation Inaccuracies are an inherent part of remote sensing analysis. The major instances of false positives may occur as the following: A random, "speckled" distribution of alerts across an ecoregion, or complete filling of a small ecoregion. Caused by limited or sparse training data, particularly in small ecoregions, which makes it difficult to tune the model there. As a result, alerts cannot be reliably detected.
In a normal ecoregion, alerts are usually clustered. A rapid explosion of alerts over months covering a relatively large area. Caused by a significant, persistent drop in detected vegetation levels due to persistent cloud cover along coastlines, in mountains, or elsewhere. Caused by shifting water bodies. These alerts should be considered not necessarily as false positives but rather as ambiguous alerts requiring additional data for corroboration.
The biome illustrated by this layer includes a number of smaller forest ecoregions, which span portions of 89 countries. Overview Terra-i is a near real-time monitoring system that detects land cover changes in Latin America.
