Google Earth Engine has made it possible for the first time in history to rapidly and accurately process vast amounts of satellite imagery, identifying where and when tree cover change has occurred at high resolution. Global Forest Watch would not exist without it.Where can I find tree cover data in Google Earth Engine?
Currently, Google Earth Engine has several tree cover datasets in the catalogue, including the Global Forest Change (GFC) (year 2000) and GLCF: Landsat Tree Cover Continuous Fields (2000, 2005, and 2010). Here, we use the Global Forest Change dataset. 1. Select 'treecover2000' in the Global Forest Change dataset.Where are the deforestation hot spots around the world?
