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.

C)Google Earth Outreach mapping tools March 30, 2012

People have created maps since early civilization, but only recently have digital mapping tools like Google Earth and Maps made it easy to build sophisticated and interactive maps that can be disseminated to hundreds of millions of people online. Non-profits have taken advantage of these tools to create maps that matter, and that are truly initiating change around the world. That’s why my team. Google Earth Outreach, exists: to help public benefit organizations use Google’s mapping tools for good. Find out how non-profits are changing the world with maps.
There’s no better inspiration for creating your own map than the stories of accomplishment from organizations like the ones featured in the video above. We invite you to check out the new Success Stories section of the Google Earth Outreach website. Along with a completely new look and feel, our website now allows you to learn all about a variety of organizations that are using maps for good.

Get started by reading about how the Amazonas Sustainable Foundation partnered with Google to collect Street View imagery for the Amazon. It’s now possible to virtually float down the Rio Negro and its tributaries, see ground-level images of riverside communities. And trek down a trail into the Amazon rainforest, all without leaving the comfort of home. You’ll also learn about Architecture for Humanity, an organization using. Google SketchUp to design architectural solutions for communities in need.

Once you’ve read through the stories and have an idea of what you might like to create. You can browse through our tutorials or request a software grant for our enterprise-level products like. Google Earth Pro. Or. If you’re interested in an overview of all the tools available to you from Google, feel free to check out our Explore Tools page. Where you’ll find information about the many Google mapping tools (both free and Pro). That are available to non-profits.

If you’re looking for additional training beyond the tutorials. Check out our new Events page, where you can see where. Google Earth Outreach will be next and where we’ve been in the past. Including rich resources from past workshops.

If you want to change the world, we hope these new tools help. Happy mapping!
