Other Initiatives

  • The Annual Land Cover and Land Use Mapping of Brazil Project is an initiative involving a collaborative network of experts in biomes, land use, remote sensing, GIS and computer science that uses cloud processing and automated classifiers developed and operated from the Google Earth Engine platform to generate a historical series of annual land cover and land use maps of Brazil.
  • The “Amazon Annual Land Cover and Land Use Mapping” Project is an initiative that involves a collaborative network of, land use, remote sensing, GIS and programming experts. It's based on cloud computing and automated classifiers found in Google Earth Engine to generate a time series of annual land use and land cover maps of the Pan-Amazon.
  • The Project "Annual Mapping of Land Use and Land Cover (LULC) of the Trinational Atlantic Forest" is an initiative that involves a collaborative network of specialists from Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay, in topics such as land use, satellite remote sensing, GIS, and programming. It uses cloud processing and automated classifiers developed and operated from the Google Earth Engine platform to generate a historical series of annual maps of land cover and use in the Trinational Atlantic Forest.
  • MapBiomas Pampa Sudamericano is an initiative that involves a collaborative network of specialists from Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay in topics such as land use, satellite remote sensing, GIS and programming. Our objective is to understand the processes of transformation that take place in the territory of the Pampa Sudamericano through the annual monitoring of land cover and land use changes. It uses cloud processing and automated classifiers developed and operated from the Google Earth Engine platform to generate a historical series of annual maps of land cover and land use in the Pampa Sudamericano.
  • MapBiomas Alert is a system of validation and refinement of alerts of deforestation, degradation, and regeneration of native vegetation with high-resolution images. This current version is dedicated exclusively to the theme of deforestation in all Brazilian biomes and will expand to the other themes over the next two years.
  • MapBiomas Indonesia is an initiative aimed at mapping land cover and land use in Indonesia. It counts with the participation of nine local NGOs and the coordination of Auriga Nusantaras. MapBiomas Indonesia Collection 1 is the first initiative outside South America to use the methods of the MapBiomas collaborative network. In this first collection, 10 land cover and land use classes were mapped covering the period from 2000 to 2019.
