The Forest Cover Analyzer enables users to assess forest cover change and risks related to sustainable palm oil production in areas of their choice in Kalimantan, Indonesia.

Developed by the World Resources Institute (WRI) under Project POTICO, in partnership with Rainforest Alliance, SarVision, University of Maryland, Sekala, and Puter Foundation, the Forest Cover Analyzer allows users to answer these three basic questions about any area of their choice in Kalimantan, Indonesia:

  • Where and when has forest cover change occurred?
  • What is the current extent of forest and peatland?
  • How is the area legally classified according to the Ministry of Forestry?

For methodology and other details see our Technical Document.
