Forest Watcher is a free mobile and web app for the frontlines of forest protection that makes Global Forest Watch’s satellite-derived alert datasets available to users offline. Across over 130 countries, community forest monitors, park rangers, protected area managers, smallholder farmers and others protecting global forests use Forest Watcher to locate, document, and expose illegal or unwanted deforestation regardless of internet connectivity.
Key features include downloading forest change alerts, collecting data in the field, integrating additional data, managing teams and sharing reports.
The tool is now more user-friendly than ever! Forest Watcher recently introduced several exciting new features and updates that make managing teams, sharing data and reporting field investigations more convenient.
During the webinar, we will provide a demo on Forest Watcher’s latest features and walk you through the workflow of how to use the Forest Watcher app and web for field investigations with deforestation and fire alerts from Global Forest Watch. You will also hear from Forest Watcher users on how they’ve used the tool for forest monitoring, including best practices and lessons learned.
All registrants will receive a copy of the webinar recording even if they cannot join live. This webinar will be hosted in English with simultaneous translation to Spanish, Portuguese, French and Bahasa Indonesia.
