Global Forest Watch (GFW) is an online platform that provides near-real-time data and tools for monitoring forests. The GFW map utilizes cutting edge satellite and remote sensing technology to show near real-time data on tree cover loss. Tree cover data is accompanied by land use and conservation data to contextualize forest change. The GFW platform allows users to subscribe to alerts, conduct custom analyses and investigate forests on a country by country basis. GFW provides maps that showcase climate and active fire data. The GFW suite of tools allows anyone to access near-real-time information about where and how forests are changing around the world.
