The “Monitoring of Forests and deforestation in Quintana Roo” application combines Earth observation data and other space related to forest resources and monitoring the change in the southeastern states of Mexico. The purpose of this application is to provide information about forest areas, the risks to forests and historical and current losses.
An important part of this effort is to collate and understand the quality and availability of the data needed to improve our understanding of forest resources Southeast Mexico.
This application was produced with support from the UK Space Agency as part of a collaborative project with Ecometrica under the International Partnerships Space Programme (IPSP). The project aimed to advance the application of EO in forests in Mexico and Brazil.
The application is managed by ECOSUR on the ECOSUR EO Lab. The EO Lab is a geospatial content sharing platform which enables businesses, governments and research institutes to develop and manage their own spatial applications.
