Details

Available products: treecover2000, loss, gain, lossyear, datamask, first, or last

  • treecover2000 - (Tree canopy cover for year 2000) - Tree cover in the year 2000, defined as canopy closure for all vegetation taller than 5m in height. Encoded as a percentage per output grid cell, in the range 0-100.

  • loss - (Global forest cover loss 2000-2013) - Forest loss during the period 2000-2013, defined as a stand-replacement disturbance, or a change from a forest to non-forest state. Encoded as either 1 (loss) or 0 (no loss).

  • gain - (Global forest cover gain 2000-2012) - Forest gain during the period 2000-2012, defined as the inverse of loss, or a non-forest to forest change entirely within the study period. Encoded as either 1 (gain) or 0 (no gain).

  • lossyear - (Year of gross forest cover loss event) - A disaggregation of total forest loss to annual time scales. Encoded as either 0 (no loss) or else a value in the range 1-13, representing loss detected primarily in the year 2001-2013.

  • datamask - (Data mask) - Three values representing areas of no data (0), mapped land surface (1), and permanent water bodies (2).

  • first - (Circa year 2000 Landsat 7 cloud-free image composite) - Reference multispectral imagery from the first available year, typically 2000. If no cloud-free observations were available for year 2000, imagery was taken from the closest year with cloud-free data, within the range 1999-2012.

  • last - (Circa year 2013 Landsat cloud-free image composite) - Reference multispectral imagery from the last available year, typically 2013. If no cloud-free observations were available for year 2013, imagery was taken from the closest year with cloud-free data, within the range 2010-2012.
