Global map of forest change

The map shows forest change from 2000-12. Green areas are forested; red suffered forest loss; blue showed forest gain; pink experienced both loss and gain.
By James Morgan Science reporter, BBC News

A new high-resolution global map of forest loss and gain has been created with the help of Google Earth.

The interactive online tool is publicly available and zooms in to a remarkably high level of local detail - a resolution of 30m.

Get the map and read the article @ http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/news/specia...mg/forests.jpg

Wow! There's sure a lot of red in California.

Incredible! I zoomed in on our area of NM, the drought has caused a lot of forest to die out from the bark beetle infestation. Lot of red patches in the Southern Sacs.
