Monitoring the World's Forests with Global Forest Watch
Posted by Crystal Davis, Director of Global Forest Watch, the World Resources Institute, and +Dave Thau, Developer Advocate, Google Earth Engine

Today, The World Resources Institute, Google, and a group of more than 40 partners announce the launch of Global Forest Watch (http://goo.gl/iX3ZrV)—an online forest monitoring system that detects changes in forest cover in near-real-time. 

Using technologies including Google Earth Engine (http://goo.gl/u4iXrB) and Google Maps Engine (http://goo.gl/xIyvtC) to map the world’s forests with satellite imagery, Global Forest Watch provides the resources necessary to view and analyze the the information about where, when, and why forests are disappearing.
 
With Global Forest Watch, this data is now open to anyone with Internet access. Head over to the Google Research Blog, linked below, to learn more.

Cool site +Snazzy Maps 

Feature request:  Copyable script tag next to each style that, when inserted in your own map page, styles your map.

For example if I put <script src="//snazzymaps.com/embed_style.js?style=22_old_timey"> on my page, it could overload mapOptions to include this style by default.  Or something.

For videos on developers.google.com, can we please have a transcript, or if that's too much work, a one-paragraph text summary of the main ideas? I'm sure others are like me in having no patience for watching a video :)
