Global Forest Watch Webinar - Platform Overview

This webinar provides an overview of Global Forest Watch (GFW). GFW is an interactive online forest monitoring and alert system designed to empower people with information they need to better manage and conserve forests. The user-friendly GFW website and tools unite the latest satellite technology and imagery (including Google Earth and Google Maps Engines), forest management and company concession maps, protected-area maps, mobile technology, and crowdsourcing on a single platform to map the world’s forests.  The platform offers near real time, reliable, and open data about forest cover loss and gain around the world.
