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.

New! Intro video on Google Earth Engine, our planetary-scale geospatial analysis platform 

Google Earth Engine is Google's tool for analyzing petabytes of information about the Earth and its environment.  We use it to create images like the base image for Google Earth and the Google Maps satellite view, and you can use it too. This video describes Earth Engine, presents some examples of how it's being used, and introduces the tools you'll use to perform your own geospatial analyses.

Developers around the world are building new tools to help people stay safe during crises, engage with their communities and governments, and more effectively receive public services. What started as hobbies and hackathon projects have evolved into sustainable businesses that serve millions of users around the globe. These tools rely on open data about our societies, governments and physical world, but transform it and make it useful.\u005Cn\u005...

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 :)

Global deforestation has been mapped in unprecedented detail thanks to a collaboration between Google Earth Engine and Prof Matthew Hansen at the University of Maryland. Read more here: http://goo.gl/FBUvJ4
