In February of last year Global Forest Watch was launched (http://goo.gl/265xQN), an online monitoring system created by the World Resources Institute, Google and a group of more than 40 partners that provides interactive maps that show global changes in forest cover.
In addition to many improvements to the platform over the past year, Global Forest Watch is asking for your feedback on how it can be further improved. Head over to the Global Forest Watch blog (linked below) to learn about some of the latest updates, and contribute ideas on how it can be made even more useful.
With help from Google Earth Engine, the World Resources Institute launched Global Forest Watch, an online forest monitoring and alert system that allows individual computer users to watch forests around the world change in an almost real-time stream of imagery.
