Pictures are a traditional way to remember those moments, but now Your Timeline users on Android can preserve their travel memories and info in a new way. Google Maps users with Location History enabled can open Your Timeline, select a date from their recent vacation or everyday life and add notes to help remember what they did that day—or save important notes for later.

 

D)Google Maps Kick. The weather’s heating up, kids are out of school. And that means only one thing: summer’s officially here. Summer brings weekend road trips. Faraway escapes and all kinds of getaways in between. And with the latest update to Google Maps. We’re introducing two new features to get you where you’re going and help you remember your travels in a brand new way. Road trip warriors can now get multi-stop directions in Google Maps on Android (coming soon to iOS). Just open the app, enter a destination, tap the corner menu, and then click “Add a stop”.

E)Road trip warriors can now get multi-stop directions in Google Maps on Android (coming soon to iOS). Just open the app, enter a destination, tap the corner menu, and then click “Add a stop”. To rearrange the order of your stops, tap and hold the three dot menu to the left of “Add stop. And drag it to the position you want –.

Mapping Deforestation Time

November 14, 2013

C)We’re excited to announce today that, in a collaboration led by Dr. Matthew Hansen at the University of Maryland, we’ve built the first detailed maps of the world’s forests, from 2000-2012. Documenting and quantifying forest landscape changes such as fires, tornadoes, disease and logging.The most significant findings were that the overall rate of tropical deforestation is increasing. And global forests have experienced a net loss of 1.5M sq km during 2000-2012 due to both natural (disturbance) and human causes.

Sumatra has lost over 50% of its natural forest within the past 30 years. Click to enlarge.

E)The detailed study was published today in the journalScience, High-Resolution Global Maps of 21st-Century Forest Cover Change. Key to the study’s success was the collaboration between scientists at the University of Maryland, who developed the models to analyze Landsat satellite data, and computer scientists at Google. Who then used Google Earth Engine technology to run these models on more than 650,000 Landsat images. While the analysis would have taken a single computer more than 15 years to perform.

Here are some other notable sites:

F)Paraguay’s Chaco woodlands within the western half of the country are experiencing rapid deforestation in the development of cattle ranches. The result is the highest rate of deforestation in the world. Click to enlarge. Mapping deforestation.

G)The Siberian larch forests of Yakutia, Russia, are prone to fire during spring to early summer. Such extensive fires result in significant carbon emissions. Click to enlarge. H)Mapping deforestation.
