Google Highlights Global Deforestation with Interactive Map | Communication design |

Google earth has partnered with a research team at the University of Maryland in the realization of an interactive, digital map that highlights global deforestation.

The data used has been compiled from the results of a decade long analysis of 654,178 landsat images. each color indication on the interface corresponds to collected informational evidence: red -- forest loss from 2000-2012; blue -- forest gain from 2000-2012; magenta -- both loss and gain; green -- forest extent.
